Most of Japan’s approximately 300 pilgrimage circuits include either thirty-three or eight-eight sacred sites—numbers auspicious in Buddhism—and a pilgrim usually visits them in a set order. These journeys are often physically arduous and may require many weeks to complete. When pilgrims arrive at a sacred site, they recite a Buddhist chant or sutra and then may receive the temple’s cinnabar stamp and inscription in a booklet or on their jacket to document the visit. This type of jackets are called Ohenro-gi.

This antique Ohenro-gi pilgim jacket is woven with white cotton. All the stamps and text has been writen at the back of the jacket. In mint condition.
