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

Traditional ryokan style accommodation in Koyasan. The property is easily accessed by walking about 30 meters back up the hill from bus stop number five, which you will have got on from the cable car station. From the accommodation you can easily either get a bus into the town centre and other sights of Koyasan or walk, which is very... More

Booked into this ryokan for a 1 night stay. It is located just outside the bus stop (approx. 10 minutes from the Koyasan cable car station). There is a small sign in English indicating the name of the ryokan so finding it should not be difficult. Check in time is 3pm but the staff kindly stored our luggage beforehand. As... More

This is nice shukubo. My room had a western toilet and was located close to the prayer area and the furo. The furo is available all day/night. The amenities were a toothbrush with mini-toothpaste, new small bar of soap, a cloth tabi and onsen bath towels you can keep. Checkout is at 9 a.m. No WI-FI at this shukubo. Fukuchi-in... More

This was a memorable overnight stay but proceed with caution, this is no Shangri La. The temple lodgings are expensive and it is overall, a highly managed experience with little flexibility and all on their terms. The town itself is actually a busy tourist area with lots of traffic going through and there are multiple temples all of which compete... More

Beautiful monastry with stunning gardens in historic Koyasan. The rooms are very similar to a good Ryokan with very nice tatami rooms. Amazing traditional vegan food all beautifully cooked. Very nice onsen. Peaceful place to stay.

Two nights in Fukuchi-in was a great break in the lovely Koyasan. The monks looking after us were charming and very friendly. Food was brilliant - its vegan my meat eating friends. Onsen (inside and out) were great to use and the location perfect.

Stayed here for one night during the summer with some friends. It was quite a hassle getting to Koyasan station as we departed from Tokyo. However, once we arrived at Koyasan station, the staff guided us to the right bus and gave us a map of the bus route that allowed us to get off at the right stop. The... More
