It was a lot of effort to get to Koyasan, which is worth keeping in mind when planning a trip here.
If you do decide to visit Koyasan then I’d recommend a night in this temple. The service we received was very good. The food is entirely vegetarian, which isn’t for everyone. But the setting for dinner is very traditionally Japanese and we are glad we got to experience this.
The rooms are also nice and traditional. It felt more spacious than other hotel rooms in Japan.
The private onsen was nice, but worth knowing that it is one at a time (male and female separate). So you may have to wait.
The monk ceremony in the morning required an early get up (6:30), but it was good to be able to experience this.
Check travel arrangements before booking so you are sure you want to do it. It was over 4 hours for us from Kyoto. More
