Famous for the secluded temple town nestled on top of Mt. Koya, this little gem is the center of Shingon Buddhism in Japan. A world away from Osaka, strolling among the hundreds of temples filled with bustling monks and surrounded by huge trees makes for a lovely day trip (or overnight stay, if you opt for temple lodging!) from the modern city.
