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. Here you will enjoy a lunch of authentic Buddhist vegetarian cuisine at Henjoko-in Temple, Eko-in Temple, or Tentoku-in Temple.
