Yashima Temple Shikoku Sacred Ground 84th Fudasho【Shikoku henro Bicycle Trip ~ DAY1】
Go down the slope at once from Yakuri Cable. The wind is comfortable.
When I got down to the bottom, there was a supermarket, so I went into the store to get drink.
suddenly the local person called out to me when I was taking a break time at the rest area at the entrance after bought a club soda and watermelon because may be i was wearing a pilgrimage happi coat.
When I talked about my next destination, Yashima temple, He told me that it is faster to climb the pilgrimage road instead of the driveway.
The conversation with the locals was lively, and I had a short break for nearly 30 minutes.
The time is around 14:00.
The temple’s nokyo office is until 17:00, but it will be in time.
I straddled my bicycle and slowly pedaled.
When I drive, I climb from the Yashima driveway to the summit, but I was worried about my physical strength because it was a detour course, so I decided to climb from the henro-michi on the west side of Yashima.
There was a sign at the entrance that says 1600m to the top, so I started climbing the slope with strange confidence that Yashima, which is not so high, would be able to climb easily.
At first, it was a slope, and although I was pushing the bicycle, I became a staircase from the middle and decided to carry the bicycle.
Moreover, the slope is quite steep and you can see that you are short of breath.
I think I took a break four to five times on the way, and I felt that it was the toughest road today.
I climbed the pilgrimage road for the first time and finally reached the summit in 40 minutes.
Please visit the Daishido from the main hall and pray the nokyo.
On the first day of the pilgrimage bicycle trip, I finished worshiping safely.
When I finished worshiping and looked at the scenery, the air was so refreshing that it looked different from what I had seen so far.
