We stayed for 1 night at this beautiful temple in the Hanare room which was amazing. It was very large and comfortable with excellent heating as it was snowing in January 2014 when we were there which was just lovely. We were met by one of the monks who showed us to the room (and very kindly carried my case) and explained how everything would work and what times he would pick us up for dinner, the Buddhist ceremony the following morning and then for breakfast. We felt very well cared for and had a very relaxing time. As our son is vegetarian this was an especially interesting experience for him. The food was very tasty and provided us with an amazing tasting experience.The service the following morning was very peaceful and reflective. The Head Monk explained about the region and its history. We felt very privileged to be allowed to stay at the Temple. In terms of travelling there it was not difficult at all. We used the World Heritage Pass which made things easy to get around incorporating the train trip, cable car and bus trips up and down the main street of Koyasan. We were very pleased that we went there in winter time as the snow made everything just that bit more beautiful and peaceful. If you get an opportunity to visit Koyasan or the Fudoin Temple it is certainly worth it.
