More about Sekisho-in

Located in front of Okunoin, or the Mortuary Chapel, this inn is the perfect base for a visit to the temple. The Hon-bo, or priest's residential quarters, is a traditional-style temple, but the new building features the same facilities as a standard Japanese hotel.

- This facility is a temple lodging.
*Temple lodgings were originally accommodation facilities for Buddhist priests and practitioners, but they now also accept regular tourists.
A Buddhist temple is also located on site, so both staff and priests will offer hospitality to guests.

- Guests that reserve a plan that includes meals at this temple lodging can enjoy Buddhist vegetarian cuisine.
*Buddhist vegetarian cuisine follows Buddhist precepts and is prepared with vegetables, beans, and other plant derived ingredients.

- When staying at this temple lodging, guests can experience the following.
- Sutra Transcription: Transcribe Buddhist sutras.
- Religious Service: Observe a ritual where a Buddhist priest chants sutras, etc. (*Every morning from 6:30.)
- Okunoin Night Tour: Take a night stroll through Okunoin, the holy ground of Mount Koya. (*Tours led by a guide require a fee.)

    We enjoyed our stay in this very basic but comfortable shukubo, close to the cemetery and a short walk from all other temples and shrines in the town. Lovely setting and tasty vegan food.

    I would not recommend this place for a temple stay. This was our 3rd trip to Koyasan. Previously we stayed at Fudoin but they had no availability this time. We have traveled to Japan about 7 times now and stayed in many types of accommodation: homestay, ho

    Understanding that we were visiting a working temple, we felt unwelcome and interloping during our stay. For the money charged, we should have stayed in a less expensive guest house. By contrast, we had a nicer room in Yunomine Onsen, for half the price,
