These are the lodgings I stayed in Spring 2013 and 2014, Autumn 2015, Spring 2017 and Autumn 2018. As you can see in this list I slept in more paid accommodations during my first henro. In 2014, 2015 and 2017 I carried a bigger backpack with lightweight airmatras and sleeping bag. So I was able to sleep in henro huts, zenkonyado and tsuyado. In 2018 I carried a lightweight tent too and I slept in parks or camping grounds. I felt very safe everywhere, sometimes it is a bit primitive in the free places, improvising is the best way to deal with that. F.e. I peed on a bucket or outside. And I took a 'bath' in a toilet for the handicapped in a park, train station, supermarket or a konbini. I often went to the nearest onsen or sentō (public bathhouse), some are free for walking henrosan or they give a discount.
W/M is with 2 meals, N/M is no meals (sudomari), BF is only with breakfast. WS is Western Style. The names of lodgings in bold are linked to the days in my diary when I stayed there in 2013. Most lodgings (except shukubō Koyasan, all tsuyado, some zenkonyado and some hotels) are mentioned in the 88 Route Guide, 6th printing 2018.9.
