We finished in 49 days! Thank you to everyone who helped us along the way. You enriched this journey; made it something more.
We are very close to the end now! We have heard so many interesting stories on the way, met so many people, and learned so much about Japanese culture.
The past couple of days have become more restful. The rain gives us natural breaks. The rest is more pleasant after a nice, long day of walking.
We've passed a month of walking! Half of our journey is over.
Accident with our hammock. Despite these challenges we find ways to deal with it. Ryuoin temple. Thank you to the ladies that showed us around!
Our feet are starting to really feel it now. Made it to Ehime prefecture. We are indebted to the kindness of others. Meeting everyone has made this trip so much nicer.
1.6 km tunnel. Kongofukaji Temple at Cape Ashizuri is our destination. Smoky, a 70 year man. His chai is the most delicious in the world. A man led us to a rest hut next to Nakasuji-gawa Dam. Another shared a sandwich with us. Thanks for your kindness!
Visited Zenjibu temple. Sekkei temple. 禅師峰寺。雪蹊寺。 Iwamoto Temple. 岩戸寺。
Walking along Kochi's coastline. Walking through Konan and Nankoku. Making friends.
We met a teacher! He was delighted to hear about our plans to build a school. Nature is beautiful.
