    Hello, my wife and I are planning to walk the first twelve temples on the Shikoku Pilgrimage at the end of March. We are traveling with our youngest chilld (13 years old). We are wanting to walk the first twelve temples without camping gear, and want to stay in paid lodging. Price is not an issue. I am pretty sure we can find places to stay for our first night before starting, and we are planning to stay at Temple 6for the next night. The night after that at temple 11 is of particular concern.

    Is there anything near temple 11 that would be recommended? We are open to traveling by taxi to someplace, if that is needed, and back in the morning. We are hoping to make the temple 11 to 12 hike starting early in the morning, so we are looking for some place that will allow us to get an early start at temple 11.

    Thanks for any tips or advice!

    I tried to stay at the Access business hotel near 11...

    but I didn't have a reservation and there was no room available when I arrived.

    The guide also mentions the Yoshino Ryokan which is even closer to 11...

    I ended up staying at the Kamonoyu onsen for free on the floor of their zenkonyado, where they also gave me discount admission to the onsen. It's a great onsen that is pretty close to the two lodgings I mentioned.

    You could also catch a train back into central Tokushima at awa-kawashima station and return the next day.

    Do you have the guidebook? It has like 10 or so lodgings listed within 3km of the temple 11 so one of those should be okay.

    I highly recommend the Yoshino Ryokan. https://goo.gl/maps/Hb9bji5irSK2

    It is only about 600m from Temple 1, so you can get an early start in the morning.

    I stayed there last year in late February. Price was typical for the Henro route (~6000 yen for a single occupancy room for one night + two meals). Shared Japanese bath, communal dining room with tables and chairrs (as opposed to tatami), laundry available. All the facilities looked new or freshly renovated. The owner let me borrow a bicycle to run errands, and they also send you off with onigiri for lunch, which were absolutely clutch for the mountain path to #12.
