Mount Koya holidays are ideal for visitors to Japan who are particularly looking for spiritual adventures. Near the summit of this sacred mountain is the famous Kongobu-ji Temple, which became the epicentre of Shingon Buddhism. Today, hundreds of temples and monasteries are scattered across the mountain, making Mount Koya a religious centre of profound importance. We can arrange for visitors to stay in one of these places of worship, enjoy delicious Buddhist vegetarian food and learn the basic of Zen meditation. Or you can visit for the day, walking along temple trails through cedar forests to see sacred sites,
ancestral cemeteries and stone gardens. Stop for a rest occasionally in front of any stupa (hemispheric shrine containing relics), with particularly intricate mandala geometric patterns.
