Okuboji Temple

大窪寺
The final temple on the Shikoku 88 Holy Place pilgrimage route
 This is the 88th temple on the pilgrimage route of the 88 Shikoku Holy Places (* The pilgrimage is for getting rid of bad luck, with 88 temples to grant your wishes). Many pilgrims (Ohenro-san) visit this temple as the last stop on their long pilgrimage route. Inside you will see the many umbrellas and walking sticks that have been dedicated here by the pilgrims who have completed the route. On the underground floor, there are small images of the 88 temples, and you can do the ‘osuna-fumi’, which is paying respects after walking across sand collected from all of the pilgrimage route temples. It is believed that this will grant wishes just like the actual 88 site pilgrimage.
At the entrance is the soba restaurant Yasoba-an. The noodles are made from locally produced flour and the holy water of Okuboji Temple, and can be enjoyed with dishes made from local mountain vegetables.
