History: To Be a Pilgrim

Mairis: Places of Prayer

As I traveled, I prayed for my friends (and some strangers).  You can read about my prayer routine(s), and how I undertook "A Mission to the Gods."

This page simply records where I said my prayers in the Old Tokaido and Yamato sections.  Thereafter (in the Shikoku section), I prayed at each of the 88 temples of the pilgrimage--which often meant that I prayed several times a day!
