Koyasan is historically regarded as one of the most sacred mountains in Japan. In particular, it is a holy ground representing the Shingon sect of esoteric Buddhism, with a history dating back twelve hundred years. Rich in history and culture, Koyasan is a very spiritual place for both Buddhists and non-Buddhists. It is a very beautiful place, and is worth visiting whilst traveling in Japan. We are proud to have opened the first guesthouse in Koyasan, allowing travelers and pilgrims from all over the world to visit this beautiful place at an affordable price. An oasis of simple comfort, we created Koyasan Guesthouse Kokuu in a modern style that stays true to the essence of this sacred mountain.' We welcome travelers from all over the world who are searching for a friendly and relaxed environment. We are locals running the guesthouse and thus can offer you a good insight into this sacred area, as well as some insiders tips on the best places to go. We look forward to having you stay at our guesthouse in Koyasan.
