About The Table of Contents

Printed on both sides of a heavy cardboard sheet, the front side of the Table of Contents provides a list of the thirty-four temples (the thirty-three temples on the Saigoku Kannon Pilgrimage and one affiliated (bangai) temple) visited by the trio of Nakazawa Hiromitsu 中澤弘光 (1874-1964) and his two friends, the haiku poet Ishikura Suiyō  石倉翠葉 (1875-1938) and the Western-style painter Akatsuka Chūichi 赤塚忠一 (1887-?). In addition to the temple's name and number on the pilgrimage route, the province the temple is locate in (using the old province names) and the temple's prefix, often the sacred mountain associated with the temple, are provided.

The reverse side of the Table of Contents provides the names of four additional prints (including the bangai temple print of Nata-dera appearing on the front side) designed by Nakazawa. It also provides the names of the other contributors to the album - the Buddhist scholars Mochizuki Shinkō and Washio Junkyō, the poets Sasaki Nobutsuna and Ishikura Suiyō and the artist Akatsuka Chūichi and their respective contributions.

The Saigoku Kannon Pilgrimage (Saigoku sanjūsansho junrei) 

Japan's most famous pilgrimage, originating in the 11th century, encompasses 33 Buddhist temples in Western Japan (Kansai region) dedicated to Kannon (bodhisattva Avalokitasvara), the Bodhisattva of Compassion, who hears the cries of the world and assists anyone in distress.

The 33 temples on the approximately 1,000 kilometer pilgrimage route correspond to Kannon's ability to take on 33 different forms. One hundred thousand pilgrims navigate the route in its entirety or part each year.

Note: For a listing of all 33 temples go to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saigoku_Kannon_Pilgrimage. To access an interactive map of the route and its temples go to https://www.thetempleguy.org/p/saigoku-33-kannon-route.html and scroll down towards the bottom of the page.
