What To Expect

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.

    Many of the temples are really beautiful. The meals we were served was naturally vegetarian, but of a very high standard - delicious.

    Quiet, far away, people meditation good place. Fast food. Worth a visit. It is advisable to arrange a two-day itinerary and come slowly.

    The feeling can be it, the guide is very clear, to provide votes, but the rice did not catch up with eh ,,, but must pay attention to their own one, no tour guide, set only after the ticket and description ... and then explain the English, If the English is not good, do not try to try

    Very rare experience, the process of going up the mountain has been very memorable, mountain mist around all the way to accompany us. The monastery is very quiet, is a trip to let people calm down the journey.
