Rengejo-in Monastery

Koyasan, Japan

With its lovely gardens, this traditional Buddhist temple perched on a mountaintop offers Japanese-style guest rooms in a serene setting—a true window into the heart of Japan’s religious culture. Enjoy hearing Buddhist chanting in the morning and there is silent meditation in the early evening. Shojin ryorii (vegetarian cuisine) is served up by the monks. We’ve been bringing groups here for more than 10 years.
