It was great to meet the young monks of Ekoin who work extremely hard to provide an enjoyable experience for guests. The cemetery tour in particular was very special.
Location Accomodation Dinner
Wi fi conection really poor only one toillet for a lot of rooms Value for money, a little bit expensive
This temple inn was one of my favorites in Koya San. The monks at this monastery were the most helpful and willing to talk about their faith and the history of Koya San - even going so far as to give me a personal one-on-one about the graveyard next to the temple (they had a nightly tour of the cemetery that had to be canceled due to the typhoon). Seeing that I was so disappointed in the weather one of the monks took me aside and gave me a brief history of the temple, the cemetery and Koya San - incredibly grateful for the extra effort. Wonderful food, great location, and the fire ceremony was a true cultural sight to see. Plus, who doesn't love monks who will not allow you to go out into a typhoon and then offer you additional tea/food/shelter after your checkout time has come and gone?
evening visit on the cementery guided by the monk
The japanese style rooms are opened for beutifull gardens. The dinner and breakfast service at the room. The guided night visit at the cemetery. The fire cerimony.
The atmosphere of the place, the building, the room, the garden, the food, the ceremony with the monks.
The bathroom is not private, but we knew it. The room is a little expensive.
location staff cerimonies
Fantastic area to stay where you can observe monks daily routines . Night walk through cementery with guide from temple. hot spring
- breakfast should be more reach for that amount of money . - spider:-) in sink .
Clean, kind staff, there was a short morning meditation session which was fun. The onsen was good too.
The food was great, but we could have done with a little more.
service was efficient. great room great food and most importantly great teachings night tour was very well conducted thk u! :)
wasn't very comfortable about the unlocked rooms at first.
Optional tours were a real bonus as we got to see the graveyard and temple at night and nobu (the guide) explained a lot about the Buddhist rituals.
The food was very traditional and the futons weren't the most comfortable, but it was all part of the experience.
Very close to the famous cemetry Guided tour to the cemetry at night Dinner in the room Great ambience Possibility to witness buddhist service
Great place to take a break from the stress and enjoy a new experience. Beautiful views of the garden, even in the rain, very pleasant relax in the onsen. The monks were very kind and helpful. One of the best places in our Japanese itinerary.
The service is quite professional, nice facilities, beautiful garden, very pleasant meditation hall (good meditation instructor)
a bit too much tourists oriented for such kind of a place. Although the rates are quite high, they charge you for all extras like coffee and washer. They remove the "bed" early in the morning, so that you cannot use it after the morning service (6.30 am) till after dinner (6.30 pm)
went there for a escape from real life, and it did worked. Beautiful architecture, nice and clean room and very friendly staff. Enjoyed my stay here very much and would deffo come next time!
Very close to the mausoleum Good at english Great way to experience a different way of life The monks help carry the luggage Beautiful place
Water in the communal baths a bit dirty Also, communal bathing No proper protection from mosquitos, but I managed to kill all but two
it is a fantastic experience
there are some unexpected small charges like coffee, etc... this 'business spirit' doest fit the temple
Free wifi available. Staff were lovely, kind and caring. There is a guided tour of the main cemetery attractions with an English speaking guide. Traditional Japanese dinner and breakfast given. Onsen in the bathroom.
Nothing negative. A very lovely place to stay.
It is quite unbeliveable how well they have managed to combine a temple spirit and authenticity with hotel service - there is even a self-service espresso machine. Highly recommended lodging option in a fascinating place - Koyasan is a must and definitely the best experience in our Japan trip. We tried the introduction to mediation and the cemetry guided walk. Our gide was a young monk who spoke good English and had many interesting stories to tell. Absolutely fabulous, I wish we had stayed for more than one night.
Breakfast was very frugal.
The food was amazing and served in the room. Staff was really friendly and sharing if you were interested. Beautiful building complex. Shared bathroom was clean and accessible. Totally worth it to get up early in the morning to take part in the buddhist ceremonies, which are open for visitors to attend. Excellent location next to the big cemetery (they offered a guided tour, which was unfortunately cancelled due to davy rain).
Be aware that there are some steep stairs in the building, there are some rooms on the ground floor, if that should be a problem for you.
The fire ceremony.
The monks have excellent laughter and provide a pleasant and peaceful atmosphere. the food is amazing.
The guided tour in the evening to the cemetery was cancelled because of rain. But it was ok because we took the talk ourselves!
Great temple stay. Calm and tranquil environment. Food was incredible and a very special experience. We went on the nighttime walk to the cemetery which was an optional extra - but very worth it. The meditation in the morning and the fire ceremony are also worth doing. Beds are made for you and comfortable and the rooms with the garden view are very pretty. Enjoyed the onsen as well - very relaxing environment.
The entire facility was incredible in every element. Best part of our entire trip to Japan.
Would have liked more information about the temple and the everyday lives of the monks who live and study there.
