A 1000 year-old Buddhist temple, Shukubo Koya-san Eko-in offers Japanese-style accommodations, a beautiful garden and free WiFi. the room was very comfortable and overall experience was very interesting and new. the walls of the room are pretty thin so you need to keep your volume down in order to not disturb your neighbours. bath and toilets are very clean and are not an issue at all. vegetarian dinner and breakfast were really yummy too! overall i would go back to Koyasan and would love to stay at Ekoin again.

Thankyou very much and all well needed after a weekend of rugby world cup celebrations
The experiences of walking through the temples and cemetery were some of the best of Japan. We were lucky to be here when the world was in shut down so we didn't have to compete with crowds but it was a great place for an escape from news and the rest of the world to get in touch with nature and explore Japanese Buddhism. Really cool.
Koyasan is very atmospheric even in bad weather. I enjoyed Okunoin and the Garan temple complex a lot exploring them on a very foggy day. I hiked the old pilgrimage trail up to Koyasan, which is about 20km. During my hike the weather was great and I recommend that trail very much. Around Koyasan is also the old women's pigrimage trail which is also very nice. If you're not planning on hiking one night in Koyasan will be enough. I enjoyed my stay at a temple, which was a very unique experience. I also loved the vegan cuisine.
A must visit when you are in Japan. Particularly the world heritage cemetery and mausoleum and temple in the giant cedar forest. Awesome!! In winter food at night is a little limited if not eating at the temple you are staying in
Very very beautiful and tranquil, with many temples and shrines and fabulous food. Wonderful for quiet relaxation. The bus system is super easy to use and you can get a bus pass. We would have enjoyed a longer stay, but it is *very* cold in January. I do NOT recommend winter!
Koyasan was absolutely stunning with so many sights and nature. The highlight for us was the Okuinin Cemetary, which we visited with our monk hosts in the evening and then by ourselves in the morning. The place felt so spiritual and we were very inspired by our visit. Many of the stores were closed due to the holiday but they looked very cute and full of local artisan crafts and spiritual relics. We definitely felt we could have stayed longer and will stop again on a future trip.
For my opinion, this Mountain is very peaceful place, people, places here are very clean and warm welcome to all guests visited. Every temples here are the history of Buddhist of Japan, Okuno-in is not a cemetery or a graveyard, but there are the peaceful power of a holy place. To experience the Shin-Ngon Buddhism, visitors should try to join the ceremony and short course of meditation. Visitors' questions are answered by experience. Vegetarian cuisine here is great, the Some menus are traditional vegetarian cooking only here in Koya San. I recommended Koya San a peaceful place in WAKAYAMA. Wish you enjoy.

What a gem! Everything about this stay was special—from the unpretentious and beautiful meals to the lovely room overlooking the garden. The bathes were also wonderful.
