We’ve fallen in love with this little town. The people, food, friendliness and that there is just so much to see and do. We went to this spot when we strolled all the many spots in our guidebooks and on the excellent supplies free local map. Local tourist information place is also really friendly!

I went to this attraction ,named as multicross-cultural center for visitor to Koyasan ,just opposite Koya tourism center. I bought the combo tickets,including highlighted place admission fee and "Jukai" ceremony by Japanese monk at this center. I had to register at the recepiton counter and they asked for my name for the service calling in the ritual,this sacred ritual took 40 minutes for getting the 10 good deeds for buddhists ,finally I got the certificate as proof of ritual completion. there is also souvenir shop and small exhibition there. The place for "Jukai" ceremony is solemnly sacred,I felt calm and peaceful while sitting in the ceremony .

This is a beautiful temple with sprawling gardens and a nice shrine. Yet another place in Mount Koya where it is very tranquil.

Daishi Kyokai is the administrative center of Shingon Buddhism where the main decisons are taken. There are two main buildings in the compound, a traditional temple hall, dedicated to Kobo Daishi, and a modern building for administration.
Few activities are set up for visitors like the popular sutra copying.

A most excellent experience to be able to receive the ten precepts from a master at the Daishi Kyokai. Also this beautiful building keeps a set of paintings that follow the life of Kukai. The visitors center is to the left and connected to the Daishi Kyokai.

I shall describe separately how lucky we were to find the most exquisite shukubo --Henjoko-in-- because that made our one night in this extraordinary place even more special. Koyasan is quiet and beautiful. You get there with a train from Osaka (Namba station, Nankai line) through a landscape that becomes increasingly more beautiful, with streams, tall hills, forests and trees in bloom. At Gokurakubashi you take a cable car [Note: no need to drag your bag or backpack over the very steep stairs, as we stupidly did! There is an elevator to the left of the cable car], then a bus, and you arrive to this beautiful little town, which looks a bit like a mountain resort that serves some magnificent temples and the huge Buddhist cemetery of Okuno-in. Okuno-in is full of old shrines and statues of ill-formed and ancient Buddhas with red bibs, covered by green moss and climbing up the hills amidst tall majestic cedar trees. It is a quiet and mysterious place. The most beautiful building, for me, was the Kongobu-ji temple, center of shingon buddhism. Its beauty is hard to put in words, from the monumental wood gates to the succession of rooms graced by trees, storks and flowers on golden backgrounds by the 18th century painter Tanyu Kano, to the large Zen garden, which is known for harboring many rocks. It was added in 1964 (hard to believe) but it is outside of time, one of the most perfect places I have seen. Both oldest and newest temples are grouped in Djengo Garan.
