Immersive & Enjoyable Walking Tours in Koyasan
Ryochi Takai was born and raised in Koyasan. His love for the surrounding natural beauty in the mountains led to many years of hiking the surrounding trails. His grandfather, father and brother are both priests in Koyasan, providing him with a unique insight into the spiritual practices on the mountain as well. He spent over 3 years in England, polishing his English skills and expanding his global knowledge. With a desire to return home and help introduce more people to the land he loved since childhood, 2012, he founded Koyasan Guesthouse Kokuu, the first such lodging in Koyasan. He balances a long-time passion for music with the quiet peace of the surrounding forests and enjoys giving more people the opportunity to enjoy these mountains and the deep history and sacred treasures within them. He leads various excursions in the area and his local knowledge helps many tourists come to a deeper appreciation of the heritage hidden throughout the region.
