    We stayed in the newer wing. Because of the construction/way rooms are set up, experience depends on who is in other rooms, since walls were thin/no sound deadening. Breakfast was served in a lovely communal room. Attending the morning prayer service in th

    Extremely expensive for what it is. There's nice simplicity in your accommodation, but there's a point which it becomes a rip off, with a brief ceremony thrown in. Wouldn't recommend it. Have had more authentic experiences for a fraction of the price. We s

    One of the best places I stayed in Japan, it was located a short walk from the nearest bus stop but directly across from some major temples which were even able to be viewed from my window. The temple itself was so peaceful and all the staff were so lovely

    I have no words to thank the staff of Koyasan Saizenin. Aside from the perfect location which was just next to the biggest wonders of this beautiful area (literally across the street), the people of this top notch temple restored my faith in mankind. I lef
