Henjoson-in遍照尊院

303 Koyasan, Koya-cho, Ito-gun, Wakayama Prefecture

4.0/5 BEST REVIEW

by sudobringcookie Switzerland / 15 Apr 2018

The food is vegan and very good but served in a dining hall with chairs and not in the room. We liked it a lot. The Tempel itself is rather dated and not one of the nicest in town but ok. The Inauen is great but only indoors. The morning ceremony starts at 06:00 sharp so be there 10 minutes early. It last about an hour and is quite interesting. No meditation. The monks barely speak English so do not expect to get any explanation about the temple, but it is enough to get around. There is a gas heater in the room. The rooms are spacious and have a private toilet. The temple closes at 10pm so you have plenty of time to visit the cemetery by night. Don’t miss it because it is a completely different experience than during daytime. You do not need a guided tour with 20 people..., because the way ist well lit and you cannot miss it. If you are into hiking do the blue hiking path- it is great. Maps at the tourist information.
