When I stared my visit of Japan in 2015 I never heard about Koya-San. For sure I investigated what's to see and to explore and I learned it's one of the holy places of Japanese Buddhism with a some thousand years of history. I found Koya-San is still, even today, a kind of remote place surrounded by
I thought I a have a idea what's to expect, but in the end it was one of the best and most spiritual stay I ever had in Japan. I won't forget this place and every second I spend there.
Since 1930 it's possibly to access Koya-San by train and it seemed to me a wonderful and relaxed way to use this opportunity for my travel. The train ride was for sure a exciting starting point for this visit and I won't forget using using a funicular for the last really steep part of the train ride.
I loved Okunoin cemetery from the first moment. I felt I'm in other world surrounded by all this spirit and wonderful nature. I enjoyed my time there really a lot and in the end I spent most of my time of my 3 day stay at this cemetery. I know even I spent there lot's of time there is so much more to explore and for sure I'll come back some day.
