We wanted to learn more about Koya san and decided to take the walking weekly tours, both the okuin 9 am and the 1 PM tour of the 2 other temples. Each tour is about 90 mins each. We had in both cases Kodama san giving us the tour and we cannot recommend her highly enough. A woman who has a lot of knowledge of Koya san and its history, full of anecdotes and who cares for her guests. We learned a lot and highly recommend taking these tours if you are in Koya san.

We went on a tour of the temples with Midori. It was raining heavily but we were keen to do a tour. I was surprised the tour wasn’t cancelled as the weather was terrible and if I had been a tour guide I would definitely have cancelled. But the team were keen to help. The tour was really informative and interesting. It definitely enhanced the experience of seeing the temples. Highly recommended.

Good walking tour with a woman who was deeply knowledgable about the religious aspects of the garan temple complex. It was very interesting and almost spiritual. We took the 3 pm tour for 1.5 hours - well worth it.

We visited this location and hired the services of two of the tour guides. Very worthwhile, especially the cemetery tour.

We stopped here to check on a few things when we arrived in Koyasan. The woman who helped us was very knowledgeable and went out of her way to be sure all of our questions were answered. She also offered additional tips and insights and there was a helpful brochure. If you have questions during your stay, I would visit the information center.
