Artist's Description

Yashimaji Temple (Yashima) is the 84th of the Shikoku 88 temple pilgrimage – after a breathtaking bus ride up a steep cliff side we arrived to the see all these amazing pilgrims praying and worshiping – The air was heavy with incense and votive candles burning. It was atmospheric and hypnotic listening to the rise and fall of the chanting with the incense whirling through the air burning in such large amounts burning in the huge brass urns.

The two pilgrim ladies were truly beautiful spiritual people – they were chatting to us in half English half Japanese and they gave us lovely little handmade gifts to take around the temples with us and tie to the different shrines.
