Hidden in an idyllic mountain valley surrounded by 8 peaks, Koyasan is the heart of Shingon Buddhism. After arriving, guests are free to explore the many beautiful temples, hike, or relax in the temple gardens.

After a dinner of “shojin ryori”, Buddhist vegetarian cuisine, rest in the elegant tatami rooms of Henjoko-in Temple, savoring the quiet. Early in the morning, visitors can join morning devotions and meditation with the temple monks.

After breakfast, spend the remainder of your day exploring Mt. Koya before making your way back to Osaka on the shinkansen (bullet train).
