Koyasan Temple Retreat

Available as an overnight extension from Kyoto or Osaka

Koyasan Temple Retreat

Enjoy a break from Japan’s hectic city life on this overnight escape to the Buddhist mountain refuge and UNESCO world heritage site of Koyasan.

Outline Itinerary

  1. Day 1: Koyasan

    Leave Osaka/Kyoto this morning on the local train bound for Koyasan. The 3-4 hour rail journey by local express train is considered one of the most scenic in Japan, taking you on a winding course through the valleys and mountainous foothills of Wakayama Prefecture, before dropping you off at the base of the Koya Mountains.

  2. Day 2: Departure

    Wake early to watch the monks chant their morning prayers. Almost all of the temples in Koyasan conduct their own morning service, and guests are generally invited to attend.
