I wouldn't recommend staying for a long period, but this is certainly an experience to be enjoyed short-term. Occupants sleep on futons on the floor, and the best rooms have a toilet/basin attached, but no shower or bath. Baths are available separately in more shared areas. The food was amazingly good and quite varied, but we (in our late 60s)... More

The guy at reception belongs to the Surly Buddhism school. This was the most expensive and least friendly place I have stayed in Japan. Rudeness really stands out in Japan, where people are generally so tolerant of ignorant foreigners. Food and onsen were mediocre for the price. Room and place itself are beautiful.

Excellent Monastery stay! the place its stunning, the temple beautiful. The room was ok though. Food absolutely amazing! I got the chance to participate in the morning prayer and there is a possibility to also do some calligraphy (at a cost). The private onsen it's really beautiful and there is also a sauna :) Location was perfect as well! a... More

Koya-san is a wonderful place to explore for an afternoon and morning. One night stay is perfect. We left our bags at the inn and explored the nearby impressive temple complex. In afternoon we returned to Fukuchi-in where we were shown to our traditional ryoken style room with tatami mats and a low table. Charming, clean, comfortable. We soaked in... More

it takes a long time to get to Koya San from Osaka. The trains are crowd and reserved seat train are always sold out. Once you get there, the Inn is beautifully landscaped and is to be enjoyed. However, since you are in the mountains, it can be real cold in the rooms. I got a room facing the sun,... More

What a gorgeous place Koya-San is. The ride up the mountain in our tour bus was exciting enough and the walk through the Okunoin cemetery was marvellous. The inn provides traditional Japanese style accommodation sleeping on a futon matters on tatami matted floors and sliding doors straight out of one of those old samurai movies. The room does provide your... More

This Inn is a place you go to for the unique experience, not for all the conveniences. The grounds are gorgeous though I didn't get a chance to see much given that it started to pour shortly after we arrived. We had to leave our shoes at the entrance and were given a short tour of the Inn and then... More

We were a large school group of 25. We had 21 junior high students with 4 adults. So with that said, I would not say this is a place for young children. However, it was a very unique and rare opportunity for them to experience something like this. Part of being on an international school trip is about learning about... More
