A 1000-year-old Buddhist temple, Shukubo Mount Koya offers Japanese-style accommodation with a beautiful garden. Staying here, all guests have chances to attend Buddhist morning services, the Goma fire ritual and meditation for free.
The temple lodge features the typical Japanese rooms with tatami-mat flooring, comfortable futon bedding, and paper sliding screens. All come with an LCD TV and a safe. Bathroom facilities are shared, and the public baths are open 16:00-22:00 and 06:00-09:00 daily.
Guests can experience group meditation, and they can write Buddhist texts with a brush and ink on scrolls at their room. They can also go hiking in the scenic surroundings of Koya-san Eko-in.
Meals are served at the guest room at scheduled times and feature Buddhist vegetarian cuisine. Groups of 4 or more persons dine at the Japanese-style dining room, where chairs can be provided upon advance request.
