The area
Neighborhood: Southern Kyoto
Southern Kyoto has a reserved air. Though the Fushimi Inari Shrine is one of Kyoto's major tourist attractions, the surrounding nature, parks, gardens, temples, and shrines provide less-visited spaces for strolling and reflection. The Fushimi Inari Shrine itself is made up of 32,000 sub-shrines, and the mountain they are dotted across beckons hikers, picnickers, and lovers of the outdoors. Many of the mountain's off-set paths aren't frequented by tourists, and the mountain's serenity can be enjoyed at a leisurely pace. Southern Kyoto is the place to enjoy being outside, and to pay your respects to the ancient architecture and gods of the land that are celebrated here.

Temple lodging
Apr 2015 • Friends
hoonin is one of the smaller temple lodgings. It is basic, clean and friendly. The food was very delicious and ceremoniously served which was lovely. The bedding was good. The toilets were clean but shared male/female with urinals. To be fair I don't think the men used them. The meditation was a bit disappointing. Felt very much for the tourists rattled down. So not so good if you are after the meditation. But then Koyasan is touristy.
