Carpe Diem Haiku *Ryozenji*

Today is the beginning of Carpe Diem Haiku Shikoku Pilgrimage . It will take us along 88 temples on the Isle of Shikoku as we will trod in the footsteps of thousands of O-Henro (pilgrims on Shikoku-route) and Kobo Daishi (774-835).

The first one on the route is Ryozenji Temple, also known as “Vulture Peak” which refers to one of the sermons the Buddha once gave on a mountain with the same name.
