The last of the women’s temple in Koyasan. Across the road is the Otake-Jizo and next to the jizo is the start of the women’s trail to circumvent the town to get to Okunoin. Nyonindo is an easy walk from town, a little up hill and goes past the Tokugawa Mausoleum.

The last remaining women's gate. There isn't much to see but it is worth a short visit and the walk from town towards it is lovely.

they say Kukai's mother could not enter the sacred grounds on Koyasan, so she had to stay on the edge of town. This is one of several women's lodges that they used to have. Be sure to do the Nyonin-no-michi (women's path) just outside the Nyonindo that leads you to the Daimon.
