KAGAWA

A unique self-guided tour of Shodoshima’s hidden secrets

Have your journey coordinated by a couple who moved to Shodoshima after falling in love with the Island!
Shodoshima is an island popular for people to make for a 6 nights 7days pilgrimage. The pilgrimage route is extremely hilly, and the main temple is in a mountain cave. The organisers of this experience used to run a facility for pilgrimage tourists in Matsuyama, Ehime prefecture. But, since then, they have moved to Shodoshima and will showcase the charms of the island and show you its spiritual spots. You can experience mountain climbing, hiking, visiting temples, and performing the sutras.
