눇There monks looking after the temple were fantastic. Despite the language barrier at times, they were always very friendly and helpful. Breakfast and dinner were provided, and even though I am not a vegetarian, the food was great. Felt privileged to have witnessed a fire ritual to remember the dead and also be taught to meditate. The grounds are magical, surrounded by other temples and also a holy cemetery, housing the tomb of the founder of Mount Koyasan. A great experience overall!

눉if a complaint at all: it's quite touristic
눇Shojin-ryori excellent (vegan), perfect service, highly interesting (optional) program. However, one night and a day is probably enough for most visitors.

눇Really beautiful place in koyasan. The room was a traditional japanese room with tatami on the Floor and sliding doors. The morning ceremony was calm and peaceful. Perfect place to stay some days relaxing and meditating.
