    Perhaps readers would be interested in Takamure Itsue’s account of her Shikoku Pilgrimage, made in 1918, when she was 24. It’s a fascinating tale–an old man insists on travelling with her because he thinks she is a companion of Kannon Bosatsu; people she meet think she’s a god who can cure diseases; many of her fellow pilgrims are from the dregs of society and she describes them vividly. Takamure wrote 105 newspaper articles about her experiences and these articles made her an instant celebrity throughout Japan. The translation of her articles, The 1918 Shikoku Pilgrimage of Takamure Itsue: an English translation of Musume Junreiki, is available from Amazon and Kindle.
