4.8/5 BEST REVIEW

by Sandtourist U.S.A. (Hawaii) / 30 Apr 2018

Quite enjoyed this place. Typical tatami room with futon beds, nice garden view. Spectacular vegetarian kaiseki meal, as beautiful to look at as to eat. Staff, especially Miki-san were great. Public bath was small but clean. Bath water could have been hotter for my taste. Shared toilet had two western style toilets and shared tooth brushing areas. Cons: early curfew of 9pm -gates are locked. Also bath is open 5-9pm only, not in the mornings. Would recommend but have no comparison so don’t know if other places might be nicer.

This temple lodging is located in the town center of Koyasan. Their special handmade sesame tofu and Buddhist vegetarian cuisine is very popular among guests.
