Fudoin on Koyasan

I hadn’t done much research on Koyasan before spending the night there. I figured temple lodging would be rather rustic. On the contrary, the experience was lovely and luxurious.

Should you ever find yourself on Koyasan, here is a little secret. Everyone is eating breakfast and dinner (in their shukubo) at about the same time. Set your meal time to be on the edge of those times (first or last). If first, head out immediately after eating to find deserted, instead of crowded, temples and shrines. If last, explore just before eating. You’ll be amazed at how much better a temple site can look and feel when you are the only one there.
