Koyasan Temple Lodging
Fudo-in is a temple in the holy Koyasan Buddhist mountain retreat. It is located off of the main road between the Visitor center and Okunoin cemetery. It is a smaller temple in the upper end of a tiny valley surrounded by forest. The long entrance from the main road is marked by a stone post. Fudo-in is well known for its refined, welcoming atmosphere and peaceful setting, perfect for meditating. The separate "Hanare" rooms offer splendid views of the garden; secluded spiritual luxury.Go To Travel Campaign

: Included : Not Included
Type A Type B Type C Type D Type E
Vegetarianism is not common in the Japanese countryside. Please double-check the Vegetarian Type which the service provider can accommodate to make sure that it meets your needs. Often being able to eat trace amounts of the ubiquitous Katsuo Dashi (fish stock) makes it easier to find options.
NOTE: It is difficult and not culturally sensitive to change meal requests, or make new meal demands, onsite when you arrive at accommodations. Vegetarian types must be confirmed during the reservation process and respected during your visit.
