After visiting Kyoto, I was kind of tired of entering temples. But this temple stands out (probably because it was snowing when I went there), they served complimentary tea and traditional crackers. What's probably more interesting about the temple itself is the rock garden and the history behind koyasan that was depicted on paintings on one section of the temple. I was the only visitor inside when I visited and the temple is too huge for one person. It was almost deserted and feels like I was travelling back in time. A stark contrast to Kyoto where it's hard to find a spot to sit down infront of the zen garden.
