Too many and too often!
This morning a very useful link was posted to the Ohenro San Facebook group. A 16 page introductory guide to the Shikoku 88 temple circuit with special emphasis on the history of the pilgrimage. Some information about the customs of the pilgrimage such as distinctive clothing and temple prayers. Available in PDF form in Japanese, English, Chinese, Korean, Spanish, German and French. I've put the link for the English language version here separately. Thanks to David Moreton for posting the link.

Il Cammino del Giappone: Shikoku e gli 88 templi​

is an excellent book by Luigi Gatti, who has also walked several of the Spanish Caminos. It is available at present only in Italian, but I understand that translations are planned. It is available on Amazon in paperback and in a Kindle edition.

I fly in 3 weeks to Osaka to resume the Shikoku 88 where I left off 3 years ago. Covid prevented my return until now. Hopefully the typhoons that have battered southern Japan of late will have eased.
