Report on J.E.E. Earth Day Hike 2019

On Sunday April 21st, a few exchange students and I joined Ken, Hosoki-san and a family with young kids to embark on the Omuro 88 mini-temple pilgrimage. As we started the Earth Day celebration hike, we didn’t realise the opportunity that was given to us: to experience a reproduction of the famous 88 temple pilgrimage of the island of Shikoku that could be completed in a few hours rather than months, and to be accompanied by such a lively family with energetic kids leading the whole way of the journey.
