The bell at Temple 54 Enmeiji (Temple of Long Life) dates back to 1704.
A group of bus henro walked ahead of us to the next Temple.
Temple 55 Nankobo (Temple of Southern Lights) is a large Temple complex in the middle of Imabari City.
Temple 56 Taisanji (Peace Mountain Temple)
Temple 57 Eifukuji (Temple of Good Luck)
A car pulled up behind us as we were leaving a Temple and handed us each a hand towel (blue for Jeff and pink for me). One of the rare walking female henro made us a little origami swan and we received a ginger sweet from another henro.
A group of bus henro was fascinated by two walking forigners and all wanted their photo taken with us.
We made a short but very steep climb up to Temple 58 Senyuji (Hermit in Seclusion Temple), where we received a lovely post card.
We spent the night in the free Temple accommodation with 2 other henro.
