Koyasan is a secluded town south of Osaka, full of temples for people to stay in and view. I went here last week and had one of my holidays in Japan. This UNESCO World Heritage site is so stunning in the winter. Day 2 report can be found here. Here are some highlights from my trip:
Taking the cable car up the mountain.
This is probably the kind of place that you would stay at in Koyasan, in temple lodgings.
The entrance to Okunoin Temple and graveyard.
Making our way up from the main entrance.
One of the little buildings inside the temple complex.
So my first day in Koyasan was lots of fun, and the above is only a fraction of what you can see in the area. More soon!
