TRANQUIL STAY AT MT. KOYA JAPAN-

This idyllic short break is the perfect mountain retreat escape to the rarely visited peak of Mt. Koya, a place of stillness and outstanding natural beauty. While in the town you’ll stay in a monastery to fully absorb and be ingratiated into the ways of the religion.



Nestled in the Kii Peninsula to the south of Osaka, Japan, the majestic Mt. Koya is the home of Shingon Buddhism, a branch of the religion that was introduced to the mountain-dwelling people in 805 by Kobo Daishi, one of Japan’s most important religious figures.

This unique experience will immerse you in the captivating aura of local temple life as you enjoy an isolated region with an atmosphere that few travelers have the chance to experience.

You’ll visit some of the 100 temples that can be found atop Mt. Koya, a decadent area that UNESCO have deemed suitably sublime to list on their collection of Natural Heritage Sites. Your expert local guide will take you to visit Kongobunji Temple, renowned as the most important Shingon Buddhist temple in the world.

Your guide will also take you to experience the Todoro Hall (‘Hall of Lamps’) and the eerie Okunoin graveyard, Japan’s largest cemetery where you’ll discover the mausoleum of Kobo Daishi, the founder of Shingon Buddhism.
