Enjoy exploring Mt. Koya at your own pace and leisure
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.
Not Inclusive Of:
Many of the temples are really beautiful. The meals we were served was naturally vegetarian, but of a very high standard - delicious.
Very beautiful and interesting destination away from hustle and bustle of Osaka City ... with hindsight wished we had stayed for the night ... perhaps next time!!
Unfortunately there was quite some construction going on. But our guide was fantastic!
