宿泊人数の半数が海外からの方で、私も台湾人の友達と2人を連れて宿泊しました。高野山で唯一の温泉のある宿坊で、友人も私もとても癒されました。My Taiwanese friends and me spent a relaxing and peaceful time here. 精進料理 vegetarian meal were great especially tofu dishes were excellent! Onsen was released fatigue from our body.

First day in Japan...arrive at Kansai, assemble the bikes and then head off to the mountains. The ride up the mountain to Koya is quite beautiful, the roads excellent and the drivers very safe and respectful. The monastery/hotel and its grounds are as beautiful as the photos suggest. The rooms are simple as befits a monastery, but they are comfortable....

I really wanted to stay with the Monks and this is a prime place to do this. The room was very nice, be sure to book non-smoking if that sort of thing bothers you. We had booked the meals as I had read all the great reviews, but unfortunately the food didn't work for us. It looked wonderful, a fabulous...

Stayed one night. Very interesting and enjoyable experience, and nice place to stay in Koyasan. Staying at a monestary is a good way to explore Koyasan, and Fukuchi-in seemed to us to be one of the nicer ones, although maybe a bit "touristy". As some reviewers have pointed out, it's not a "buddhist temple experience" (what is that?); it's more...

It was an amazing first experience in a shukubo and if I had the budget I would have stayed an extra night. We were lucky to still have spotted cherry blossoms on the temple grounds (and around Koyasan) when they were no longer around in Osaka! Before I made my reservation I had a look around and places were getting...

I absolutely loved the idea of staying at a temple, but unfortunately, my hopes and expectations were not met. When you first arrive, you're greeted with a beautiful entrance and garden... and hosts/receptionists all with headsets and walkie talkies. That was probably my first clue that this wasn't going to be the authentic, life-changing experience I had hoped it would...

The place: Where to begin....we were greeted with a mediocre room smelling a lot like tobacco (not explicitly shown at the time of booking), far from what we had seen online, in poor shape and with horrendous florescent lighting. There is nothing traditional about this place, it's more like a cheap hostel disguised in Japanese architecture, it's embarrassing. The place...

We loved staying here. We had an 8 mat tatami room and really enjoyed it. At check in we were given a thorough tour of the place and everything was explained. We had the dinner and breakfast which were both excellent. The communal baths are clean and the outside option is a recommendation. I must confess some frustration at reading...

If you are looking for a temple living experience, look no further. Be sure to join the Shokyu class in the evening and the prayers and meditation in the morning - it's all part of the experience. If you are not interested in these, you would better off staying in hotel and not a temple.

The staff at the temple is very committed to making the stay as pleasant as possible. As one of the bigger temples in Koyasan it not only features the standard buddhist dinner and breakfast as well as the morning prayer but also special experiences such as sutra copying in the evening or a small onsen inside the temple, making it...
