Temples that were sponsored

Each prefecture along the pilgrimage has been given a Buddhist place of spiritual training name and you can look at and sponsor the temples by clicking on the names below:

There are 88 temples on the Shikoku Pilgrimage route and each temple is dedicated to a particular deity. You may want to choose your temple based on the number, the meaning of the name or by the deity in the temple. Be sure to look through as many as you can to see what the different deities represent. For example your prayer may be specific and you want it said to the healing buddha or to the guardian of children and pregnant women.
Your name will appear next to the temple you have sponsored but your prayer will remain sacred and private.


  • The final temple will be Number 1 - Ryozenji.  I will walk from temple 88 back to temple no 1 to complete the circuit.
