Koyasan Temple Stay
Nan-in is an immaculate temple north of the Tourist Information Center, near the Tokugawa Reidai Mausoleum and Nyonindo women’s hall. It is marked by a large tree in the entrance way and has elegant gardens scattered throughout the grounds, which can been seen from the hallways and many of the guestrooms. The quiet solitude of these refined green spaces is soothing to the soul. The fierce glare of a giant dragon painted on the ceiling of the main hall looms over worshippers. Legend has it that if you clap under its menacing scowl you can make it roar. The sacred space of the special guestroom highlights the temple’s traditional sensibilities.
