Wander independently through the misty woods of Mt. Koya, the center of Shingon Buddhism. Kobo Daishi, one of Japan's most important religious figures, created the Buddhist sect in 805 and built its first temple (Garan Temple) in 826 after traveling for years to find the perfect place to ground his religion. Now over 100 temples line the streets of Koyasan. On your journey through Mt. Koya you'll eat a Buddhist vegetarian lunch in one of the mountain's famous temples and explore at your own pace and leisure. This 1-day trek is a fantastic outing for anyone craving an un-guided peaceful adventure.
