Hosenji is a small Buddhist temple serving the local community in Komatsushima, Tokushima. It sits along the Shikoku Pilgrimage route before the strenuous hike up to Temple 20, known as a “nansho” – difficult place to reach. The temple also maintains a zenkonyado – a donations-based lodging for pilgrims in need, called Jukokoju-an (寿康康寿菴).

How are walking times calculated?
Walking times are estimated with a modified approach to Naismith’s rule to account for elevation gains/losses and other practical considerations that require a more conservative bias. The basis of our calculations assumes a speed of 4 kilometers per hour on flat land. Learn more here.
