    I am doing a portion of the pilgrimage this fall with Walk Japan but will be arriving in Tokushima early on the first day and am hoping to visit temples 13-17 walking on my own. I promise I've looked but I'm not seeing any transit options for traveling from Tokushima Station to temple 13. (I'd prefer not to walk to temple 13 so I have more time to spend at each temple before taking the JR train back to the station.) Are there any bus or train options I'm not seeing? I would be so grateful for any advice.

    The guidebook says to take the bus bound for Yorii-naka from Tokushima station and get off at Ichinomiya-fudasho-mae bus stop which is right across the street from 13.

    Thank you so so much, I am so grateful for all your help! I only have a few hours in Tokushima and my Japanese is very sketchy so I'm over planning just a bit, and this is the final thing I need to figure out before I go.
