Me and my parents had a two-room with grade-up shojin food. The guy who checked us in and gave us an introductory tour was fluent in English but we had some communication issue with some of the other staff. In general staff were friendly and helpful. The temple has a lovely, traditional feel but has obviously been adapted to suit... More

I came to Koya-san for one evening and stayed at Koyasan Onsen Fukuchi-in. I really wanted to do temple lodging, and this one was great. The trip to get here was a little longer than I anticipated (coming from Kyoto it took about 3 hours door to door) However I was happy I made the trip. Koya-san is something that... More

Our tour spent one night in this monestary and to be honest it was awful. There was a tour party of 30 of us and no-one got any sleep the "beds" were wafer thin mattresses on the floor which was hard (despite reassurances that the matting made it comfortable). The food was poor I am a vegan so used to... More

One of the highlights of our trip was our night in this traditional ryokan in a Buddhist monastery. Beautiful, peaceful grounds...excellent traditional Japanese vegetarian food, picturesque, peaceful onsen...the opportunity to observe the monks' morning services...an unusual and unforgettable experience.

A peaceful place to stay, in spite of the number of rooms. The onsen was never busy. The vegetarian meal which is served in your room was delicious. There is a 9pm curfew and you have to be checked out by 9am, but this was no problem.

This is a spectacular stay. Superb food and gorgeous surroundings. Outside onsen nice if the weather is appropriate, and the morning Buddhist ceremony is a must. The only hazard is the potential for a package tour group staying, who can ruin the atmosphere. We stayed two nights, which meant we had one contemplative evening and got extra special treatment (service... More

Staying a night in Koyasan and at an onset is a must but there must be better places. Fukuchi in has attractive grounds and it has nice baths. We stayed in a garden view room with an ensuite toilet and it was quite spacious and clean. A couple of the staff who served us dinner and breakfast was warm and... More

This is a unique experience--staying in a Buddhist monastery, delicious vegetarian dinner served in the Japanese room (read: kneeling with flat tables), relaxing in the Onsen (hot tub), morning sermon. If you want to experience Japan and its tradition (and you can afford it) you should choose to stay at least one night here.The service is friendly and attentive, the... More

I love Japan and I loved the experience to stay in a Ryokan but this was a little too uncomfortable for me. It is a beautiful building, the staff is sweet and helpful but I don't have the knees for this place. If you are looking for a full on Japanese Monk experience, this is it. They only serve vegetarian... More

Great place to stay In Koyasan. Large Family room with view on the inner garden. Very quiet and well located to visit nearby boudhist temples. Great service and traditional vegeterian food. The place includes onsen both inside and outside.
