This is a simulation game based on the Ohenro pilgrimage, a 1,400-kilometer journey around the 88 temples of Shikoku region of japan. Due to the disk size only 23 of the temples on the route are represented in the GC version. As you visit each temple you are meant to offer prayers and collect a special seal that goes in your ohenro journal. Each one is unique to each temple. It is sort of a souvenir of your visit.
