Koyasan, Wakayama
We'll visit Koyasan in Wakayama Prefecture. With over 100 temples on the summit, it is known as the holy land of Shingon Esoteric Buddhism. Koyasan temples have "Shukubo," a lodging where followers and travelers can stay overnight and experience monk training. We'll stay at a temple with an 800-year-history and learn unique meditation, incense making and eat Shojin Buddhist food. In the digest, we'll introduce more casual lodgings and unique hotels converted from a railway station building.
