Henro Pilgrimage - Day 28 - May 13 (26km)

It was still raining this morning but the route demands progress.

The climb up to Shussekiji (Bekkaku 7) didn’t take as long as I thought it would, and it was quite peaceful. I felt like the only human on the mountain. There were some tricky sections, but that made it fun. I was there by 14:00 or so, and the view from the top was stunning. A temple sat upon a mountain peak.

When I get home I won’t be pursuing KanjiNet. I’m going to move on to Big Sky directly. That’s what I want.

Post-trip Addendum:

Shussekiji, while a Bekkaku, is massive and gets many visitors. Only a few were there while I was, but you could tell it’s a frequented location, despite not being part of the main 88. This was the only temple on the entire pilgrimage that I was able to stay at officially. My room was quite spacious and the shared bath was surprisingly modern. I had to cook for myself though, and boiled my pasta noodles over by the temple gate with the Guardian Statues peering down over me.

Big Sky is my next major software project, after I release Aura 4. Stay tuned.

Original Japanese:

朝はまだ雨だったが出発するしかなかった。出石寺への登山は静かで平和だった。その頃雨も止んでいた。寺は山頂に在り景色が相当な物。

やはり帰ったら漢字ネットじゃなくて直接 BigSky に移る。 That’s what I want.
