Koyasan Tours

Koyasan is the center for an important Buddhist sect known as Shingon Buddhism. It is located on the forest covered mountain top of Mount Koya.

Koyasan is temple town located in the wooded mountain top of Mount Koya. It is the center of Shingon Buddhism, which is an important Buddhist Sect. Shingon Buddhism combined both Shinto and Buddhist practices that can be traced back to the 9th century. In the north eastern part of Koya Ryujin Quasi National Park is where you can find the temple, which is south of Osaka. In 2004 it was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site along with two other religious sites. Koyasan is also an important stop for pilgrims to use while on their pilgrimage.

The Kongobuji Head Temple was founded by the Kobo Daishi in 805. From the day it was founded the temple has expanded into the size of a small town. In this secluded location the monks that reside there still practice the teachings and offer accommodations to experience the lifestyle there. This includes the vegetarian meals called shokubo and morning meditation with the monks. It is one of the best ways to experience life at the monastery and feel the spiritual energy surrounding the premises. Koyasan is one of the places where people can go to a university that focuses on religious studies.
