Another pastry breakfast (what was that we said about losing weight in Japan...?) followed by another train, this time to Tokushima, on the east coast of Shikoku. This train was pretty busy, mostly because it featured 'Anpanman,' a popular kid's character on the side, and also HAD A BALL PIT IN ONE OF THE CARRIAGES! Trains in England need to up their game.
After dropping our bags off, we had a little mooch about the ...

I can see why this is off-season for walking henro.. Or any pilgrims for that matter. It is crazy hot and humid. On my first day I seriously wondered what I had gotten myself into. I downed litre after litre of water. My backpack grew from 10kg to a hundred kilos, or so it felt anyway. The route led me passed rice paddies and small villages. Nowhere was any shadow to hide in.
