I thought about this summer but now I doubt. Perhaps, it's better to shift to February. Also maybe till that time I find a company to trail, well I hope so...

Hi Dave,

I've been pouring over the 5th edition (my first Henro guide).

Now, though these are few & far between, if I see grammatical errors, would it be alright if I mention them as I see them ? It's usually just a word spelt slightly wrong.

For example,

Page 97, under "Hiking & Outdoor Shops"
Rinku Premium Outlets: short walk from Rinku-town Stn, nect to Kansai Airport Stn

And then a little on down the page

Patagonia: 800m wast of Kochi prefecture office (see page 40L)

Here's what I've found could be public transport shortcuts....

* T23 to T24 - You could catch the train from Hiwasa to the end of the line at Kanno-Ura, then a bus onto Muroto. Now, instead of travelling for 2 days, it might only take you about 2-3 hours.

* T27 to T28 - You could catch the train from Tonohama Station all the way into Kochi Station, then base yourself at a hotel for a few days and radiate out for a few days with a 'day pack' (as you do T28 to T35) - catch transport to spot near first temple of the day, walk between them, see if there's a bus/train/tram station nearby at the end of the day to come back in Kochi main area.

*T36 to T37 - There's a ferry on the northern side of the bridge north of T36. It's a local ferry where you can go from the bay opening all the way west to Uranouchi, it runs 4 times a day, takes an hour and costs about 650Y. If you were to walk it, it could take 3 hours.

*Still T36 to T37 - Once you've gotten off the ferry, keep walking to the Susaki Station (it's about 2kms/30 mins down the line but more trains and quicker trains) , then catch the train down to Kubokawa Station. If you're lucky, there are some express trains who do that distance in < 30 minutes (but cost about 1800Y). The difference however is that the walking distance between those two stations would be about 7-8 hours.

*T37 to T39 - Catch a train from Kubokawa Station to Nakamura Station, then a bus from Nakamura Station out to T38 and back (whenever that may be, if same day or not). And then catch another train from Nakamura Station to Hirata Station and walk to T39. You could do all that on trains in a day (maybe a day and a half). If you were walking it, it would be 135kms/85miles, which is a good 3-4 days of walking. You could even leave the bulk of your backpack in a locker at Nakamura Station and again, use a day pack to go on the bus down to T38 and back.

*T40 to Uwajima - There are some buses that stop in Ainan and travel onto Uwajima. The distance between these points is 40kms/24miles, so either an hour on a local bus or a good day's walking.

*T43 to T44 - Ok, this one is a long go-round, but could work. You get on the train at Unomachi Station and travel ALL the way into Matsuyama Station. You stay wherever you're staying and do public transport each day to see the temples. There's a bus that goes to Kuma-Kogen (so you can do a day-trip and do T44 and T45 and be back in Matsuyama by nightfall). Then you travel out to Kume Station and walk south to T46 and slowly work your way north until T51. At the end of T51, you walk to the Dogo-Onsen tram station and catch a tram back into town. Then for T52 & T53, you catch a train out to Takahama Station, walk to T52 and T53, then walk to Iyo-Wake Station and back into Matsuyama Station.

* T53 to T54 - Simply catch a train/bus from Matsuyama Station to Imabari Station. It should take no longer than an hour, but to walk it would easily take a day's travel.

Wish you luck and all the best!

I am asking you a big favour from you

Can you please say write on the next post which temples I will walk and get bus or train please

I will walk a few miles from one to another like max 5 odd miles but anything longer I will get transport

Thank you


That's lot of work and on phone too long to list but there's list of temples and distances in the site available. If its just distance that decides it that gives enough to make as good guess as i can. If you are looking at speed you would need to know bus schedules and whether you camp or not.

Thank you so I will be using the trains after temples 17

Thank you


If you want but plenty close to each other temples after that like 20 to 22, 24 to 26, 29 to 35 are each fairly close to each other. Then on ehime after 40 again plenty undes 10km temples. In kagawa almost no over 10km distance between temples

 10   Shikoku Japan 88 Route Guide / Guidebook Correction  on: Jul 16th, 2017, 10:45am

FYI, i received my copy of the new 2017 5th edition of 88 Route Guide. One correction that everyone should note.

On page 10, the hours listed for Post Office ATMs is incorrect, as far as i know. The correct hours for Post Office ATMs in small rural towns, like the vast majority you will pass, are:

9:00am to 5:30pm, Monday through Friday
9:00am to 12:30pm, Saturday.
Closed on Sunday and holidays.

In large cities, like the prefectural capitals, there will be what they call a "Central Post Office," and these are frequently open 7 days a week.

In any case, plan carefully. small town and side-of-the-road Post Office ATMs are not open on Sunday.

Dave
