In Japan, the island of Shikoku is famous for its eighty-eight-temple pilgrimage. The temples are associated with the priest Kukai. The traditional pilgrims walk the pilgrim path, but most modern-day pilgrims travel by bus. Mount Ishizuchi is one of the highest peaks in the west of Japan and a popular destination for hikers and nature lovers. It is believed to have been an active volcano around fifteen million years ago. Do not miss the Joju, a worth-seeing shrine near the ropeway station. In Tokushima, there is the well-known summer festival Awa Odori. In the middle of August, this festival attracts more than a million people annually.
