Based on my observations, most walking o-henros are male and retirement age. Couples of all ages tend to drive automobiles.
This morning I met a retired Japanese o-henro. As he walks he’s praying for the marriage of his two daughters. When I fell into step with him, he remarked I walked fast. What a wonderful reminder I needed to slow down as minor blisters and tender calluses are on my toes.
At dinner, I met an o-henro who is walking Shikoku 88 Temples nine times. I’m such a rookie.
