Overview

Daishi Hall Public viewing
2020 commemorates the 1100th year since Kobo Daishi (774-835), the founder of the 88 sacred sites of the Shikoku pilgrimage, received his posthumous title from Emperor Daigo (885-930). In celebration, there will be a special opening of the Daishi Hall and the Daishi statue, usually not visible to the public.

Kobo Daishi Pilgrimage Stamp Book
A special “Kobo Daishi Pilgrimage Stamp Book” will be issued at the 88 temples of the Shikoku pilgrimage in addition to the regular stamp book.


Benefits
