It is a very reasonable priced accommodation option, given how popular Kyoto is with tourists, and how tight accommodations are. Despite airbnb more common in Japan, it is still rather difficult to navigate through a largely non-English speaking host list and websites.

Located up in the mountains in Mount Hiei, I travelled there by bus (1 hour on bus 51 or 57 from Kyoto Bus Station, twice a day only, not available during winter season). For the return trip, they provided a free shuttle bus service (9am, 10.30am and 12pm) from temple to Otsukyo Station (30 minutes), which is 2 stations away...

The start was unpromising, actually. We arrived after a vexing...

I was told that until a few years ago Enryakuji kaikan was only for pilgrims visiting the important temples on Mount Hiei, but now it is open to all visitors and most rooms are very spacious, ours was with two comfortable twin beds, and a tatami area, with futons available for another 4 or 5 people. The room was very...

We had a very relaxing stay for one night here and a great night's sleep. It 's a modern hotel block within the temple complex. Staff were very helpful and friendly - one of the receptionists later sought us out to provide more information she'd not given us at check in. Rooms were traditional Japanese style with tatami matting and...
