If you are after a truly authentic temple stay experience this is probably not it. It's more of a temple/ onsen hybrid, designed for the high end traveler. Its extravagance is truly amazing.. there are no less than 3 (!!) zen rock gardens, all of a good size and all designed by a historically famous zen garden designer. They feature... More

Location: 5 stops from cablecar station. 10-15mins walk to the western part of Koyasan temple. Some 20mins walk to the nearest (and probably the only) Family Mart. Hotel: consider relatively large scale. Very properly run. Office staff speaks good English. A signifcant majority of guests were Western. Property is spacious, multiple toilet and bath. Bath is japanese style (means commual... More

We were prepared for a traditional living style and it was exactly this - Japanese style rooms with sliding doors, meals served in rooms and futon beds. Be aware that the breakfast is at 7-8am and your bed will be taken away at this time, so no lieins. There is a curfew at 9pm, but to be honest nothing to... More

I can't complain about the experience at the inn itself. It's a nice building with nice grounds. The staff are friendly and well organized and everything is clean. No complaints there. The food is...food. It's all vegetarian, which I'm fine with, but be prepared to eat soy, soy, and more soy. I would have preferred more veggies as opposed to... More

The food is so graciously presented (all vegi) we didn't eat everything served. The outdoor warm baths. The Tatami sleep. The place ha s a magnificent garden, We woke up early to here the monks pray.

This is a wonderful place to stay in a magical part of the world. Although it is a cliche, it really feels as if one is stepping back in time here. The welcome is warm, but be sure to wear the right slippers in the right places. The rooms look sparse at first but once you settle into the mood,... More

When I decided to visit Koya-san I knew that I would want to stay at a temple. I chose Fukuchi-in Onsen and was most happy with my choice. My room was huge, had a toilette and little sink (loved that!!!) and a spectacular view to the inner rock garden. The onsen was a great plus and after a cold day... More

The temple resort is extremely well done with great care for the detail. The room served vegetarian dinner - 'Shojin-ryori' - was the best meal I have had during my vacation in Japan. The resort's gardens are truly magnificent!

This was a beautiful temple that we spent a night in when we went to Koyasan, which was an incredibly inspiring place. We ordered the Shojin ryori (Buddhist temple food) for dinner (about $30/person), and it was the most beautiful sight ever! As a vegan, it was quite nice as I had been having trouble finding a variety of food... More
