Enryakuji Kaikan延暦寺会館

Hieizan, 4220 Sakamotohon-machi, Otsu-shi, Shiga Prefecture

4.5/5 BEST REVIEW

by Paola Mannaro Japan / 29 Apr 2018

One of the best views in Japan from ALL rooms, and from the enormous baths and dining areas. Just stunning. Overall one of the best value places I have ever stayed in Japan. The 'Kaikan' is in the heart of the Buddhist temple complex of Mount Hiei. The 700 yen Mount Hiei daily pass covers ALL THREE of the temple complex areas. These 3 areas are separated by gorgeous hill walks, with magnificent scenery, around 2.4km apart. Buses if you don't wish to walk. There is a fantastic map in English, to navigate all three sites. The mornings and evenings are absolutely serene and delightful for solitary walks or meditation.

A shukubo located within the grounds of Mt. Hiei Enryaku-ji Temple in Otsu City. The temple itself is said to have 1200 years of history and is deemed a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Shukubo are traditional temple lodgings, and offer guests the opportunity to take a peek into the daily lives of the monks who reside at the temple. Visitors will have the pleasure of experiencing the zen lifestyle first hand, and the food served is traditional shojin ryori vegetarian monk food. The quiet surroundings and peaceful natural setting will allow guests a chance to catch their breath and cleanse their souls in this spiritual environment.

*About meals: Only Buddhist vegetarian cuisine is served for both breakfast and dinner, and the menu is the same for multiple night stays. Alcoholic drinks are available.
*Since this accomodation is located on Mt. Hiei, there are no other locations where meals can be taken. Also, please take caution as public transportation to the accomodation is limited (bus and funicular), and there is no public transportation to the accomodation after 18:00.
*The latest time to check-in is 18:00. After this time, Sakamoto Cable, the funicular line to the accomodation from Kyoto, also stops running, so please plan in advance.
*Entrance fee for Enrakuji Temple is separate from the accommodation fee, and is required to enter the temple. Adults: JPY 700, Junior high & Highschool students: JPY 500, Elementary school students: JPY 300.
*About laying out of futons: Guests at this accomodation must lay out their own futons.
