Beautiful stretch of trail along a forest stream on our way to the summit of Nyotai-san.
Final stretch of trail before we reached the small shrine on the top of Nyotai-san.From here, through breaks in the trees, we could see the Seto Inland Sea (Seto Naikai) that separates the island of Shikoku from Japan's main island of Honshu.
From the summit of Nyotai-san, it was a steady descent to Ookubo-ji with occasional (and welcome) stretches of level trail.
Temple 88 (Ookubo-ji). As the last temple of the 88 Temple Pilgrimage, it's known as the Temple of the Completion of the Vow.
