Mt. Koya, or Koyasan, is the home to a sect of Japanese Buddhism, Shingon. This area was first settled in the year 819 by monk Kukai and his followers, which was the first established temple there. Besides learning about the historical and religious significance of spots around Mt. Koya, like Okunoin - a vast, atmospheric Buddhist graveyard which leads to the sacred mausoleum of Kukai (renamed Kobo Daishi in death), visitors to Mt. Koya can also enjoy the beautiful natural surroundings and fresh mountain air. This overnight tour package includes accommodations at Fukuchi-in, a shukubo (temple lodging), where guests can try an authentic meal of Buddhist vegetarian cuisine (shojin ryori).
