Stories Concept

Experience a special and unique time of temple lodging and feel the energy of Kukai.

At the temple lodgings of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Koyasan, our guests can find the valuable experiences of meditation, sutra transcription, and Goma (holy fire offering) ceremonies.
This plan also offers a special course meal of Shojin-Ryori (vegetarian Buddhist cuisine) and the opportunity to relax in a suite room with a garden and semi-open-air bath.

Additionally, we take you on a special private guided tour of the Okunoin, the inner sanctuary and the most sacred place of Koyasan.

Along the approximately 2-kilometer approach from Ichinohashi (the First Bridge) to the mausoleum where Kukai the Great Teacher, is believed to rest, you will encounter over 200,000 tombstones and ancient cedar trees that have stood for a thousand years. This is truly an extraordinary experience for both the mind and body in the one-of-a-kind setting of sacred Koyasan.
