Route 88: Cycling Shikoku’s 88 Temple Pilgrimage
Conservation Magazine » Travel
by
9M ago
I stood at the main temple, closed my eyes, pressed my palms, and intoned the Heart Sutra. I didn’t understand it, and enlightenment didn’t come, but no matter. I still had 1400km and 87 temples to go. Like most aspiring ‘henros’, or pilgrims, we started from Tokushima, on Shikoku’s east coast. While there’s no mandatory route – provided you visit all 88 temples – most henros undertake a clockwise circuit around the island’s perimeter, with a few inland forays. The majority of temples are clustered around towns, a few on remote peninsulas, and over a dozen perched atop lofty peaks - with the m ..read more

1y ago
Topologically speaking, prominence is the elevation you must climb to reach a mountain’s summit, assuming you’ve taken the shortest route from the highest point on the same landmass. Everest is simple enough - the world’s highest peak is by definition its most prominent spot - but everything else is more complicated. For instance, while some consider Lhotse to be the world’s fourth highest mountain at 8516m, because it’s attached to Everest by the South Col, its prominence is a paltry 610m. Whereas, since it’s on an island, Hawaii’s Mauna Kea boasts 4205m of both elevation and prominence, maki ..read more

Cruises and climate: will the twain ever meet?

Clifford Roberts took a cruise and mused about cruise tourism against the backdrop of climate change and COP27 in Egypt. This is a story about a cruise, but it must begin with an admission. I’ve always regarded the industry with some scepticism. In the face of a dire climatic meltdown now being highlighted again at the UN Climate Change Conference, ships filled with tourists cocktailing their way across devastated oceans was something no responsible person should associate with, I thought. Earlier this year, when protesters in Norway called the cruise companies “parasites”, decrying amongst ot ..read more
