Our trip to Mt. Koyasan couldn't have had a better resting place other than Fukuchi-in. It's one of the first stops from when you get off the cable car up the mountain and the grounds are just simply beautiful. We Stayed for one night and enjoyed walking around the gardens, resting in the onsen, enjoying the vegetarian meals and waking... More

First about the temple stay itself: no reasons to complain, the room we had was spacious, beautiful and clean (no. 14), overlooking the zen garden, the beds super comfortable, and we even experienced the beauty of a rainstorm overnight, which only added points to our stay. We loved spending the time with open screens just looking at the zen garden.... More

Stayed there two nights as an antidote to just visiting Tokyo, Nara and Koyoto and was not disappointed. This is a temple that runs the 'hotel' as a side line with perhaps the majority of visitors being Japanese Buddhists. Smattering of international visitors and international staff. The food is complained of by some but I thought it excellent. All vegetarian... More

Nice staff, good but funny food, clean and a great experience. This is something i would do again. You have to go there!!! Just remember to be back by 9 bc the gate closes early. I thought dinner was great but make sure to bring some food in case you cant eat it

After 10 days of wonderful Japanese service and friendlyness this was quite a letdown. The reception staff was exasparated doing their job, unfriendly reception which really spoiled the start of our stay on this otherwise wonderful mountain. The rooms were rather nice and the monastery, although rather large was able to make you feel it was smaller then it actually... More

So, the staff is ok, the garden zen is really pretty, and the room is simple since this ryokan is a temple. There is a tv and no wifi in the room. I didn't find the place noisy. They served vegetarian meal which is fine for dinner but for the breakfast.. I didn't enjoyed it at all. And sadly a... More

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.

The private onsen it's really beautiful and there is also a sauna :) Location was perfect as well! a... More
