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...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...More
