We recommend staying at Bed N Chill Shippoya on the first day of model course 9.
It is a guest house located in the countryside of Mitoyo city, Kagawa, and offers private and dormitory rooms. You can enjoy communicating with other visitors because many pilgrims and backpackers stay here. The friendly owner speaks fluent English, and will happily give you travel advice.
