Day 42 - Cherry Blossom
Today was another rest day, my final full day in Shikoku. I was staying at the same hotel as when I passed through Tokushima after Temple 17. I visited Mount Bizan today, there was a cable car to the summit, but I was still feeling guilty for taking a cable car up the the mountain to Temple 85, so I walked to the summit of Mount Bizan in my Crocs to enjoy the panoramic views of Tokushima City. A notice at the summit said that one can see Wakayama Prefecture, the closest mainland, where I am heading tomorrow, but it was slightly hazy and I could not make it out. Halfway up the mountain I saw a photo-shoot of a model posing in front of an Italian sports car with cherry blossom in the background.
