Goshikidai HighlandWhere faith rises with the mountains

Storied temples of the Shikoku Henro Pilgrimage, a historic National Treasure shrine—these and more lie nestled in the Goshikidai Highland.
Each mountain in this ancient home for worship is named after a principal color in Buddhism. In fact, Goshikidai literally means “five-color highland.”
As you hike through abundant nature, notice the subtle differences between the Buddhist temples of the pilgrimage and the Shinto shrines of Japan’s native religion. Both have existed side by side since long ago.
