The Henro Helper app can help you plan and navigate the Shikoku Pilgrimage.

Henro Helper is packed with useful information to help you plan and complete your pilgrimage to the 88 Temples in Shikoku, Japan.

UPDATE: I used it on the pilgrimage and it was a great addition to the guidebook! It helped with everything: for finding accommodations, checking if you were on the path and planning your itinerary!!!
I wish you could “pin” certain waypoints to default to “on”.

I love that this is set up as itineraries giving you an example of how many temples to walk each day! It is clear, easy to read, and hopefully easy to use!
