Sunset over the Yoshino River Valley


The first 10 temples of the Shikoku Pilgrimage are along the north side of the Yoshino River. Number 11, Fujiidera is at the base of the mountains to the south of the river. On the trail up the mountains to temple number 12 is the Hashiyama Rest Hut, a concrete roof over a concrete picnic table. Here i made camp for the night and settled in to enjoy the views. Down below is part of Kamojima.


Looking upstream to the West.


Far to the East, where the river reached the sea with Awaji Island in the distance.


Down below and a little east, Ishii Town,
