Hi! I'm Miyuki Ogawa.

I will guide you!

Description of this tour

Okunoin is regarded as the most sacred site in Koyasan. It's about 2km walk. You can enjoy this splendid atmosphere and feel that both body and mind have been cleansed to the very core. After lunch if you want to visit other inportant areas in Koyasan, you can buy Danjo Garan and Kongobuji temple tour at a reduced price of 100US$. You need extra 2.5hours for that.

I have fallen in love with Koyasan. I moved ashes of my ancestors to Koyasan. So it is my second hometown. Let's enjoy the historical sites as well as delicious cuisine. I'll do my best as your guide to make your trip unforgettable.
