Mount Koya 1 Daily Tour (from Osaka)
Mount Koya 1 Daily Tour is a great way to see and visit Koyasan Okunoin, Kongobuji Temple, Koyasan Danjo Garan, Koyasan Daimon in one day. This tour is ideal for tourists who are interested in culture and history. Mount Kōya (高野山 Kōya-san) is the name of mountains in Wakayama Prefecture to the south of Osaka. Also, Kōya-san is a modifying word for Kongōbu-ji (金剛峯寺). There is no mountain officially called Kōya-san (高野山) in Japan. First settled in 819 by the monk Kūkai, Mt. Kōya is primarily known as the world headquarters of the Kōyasan Shingon sect of Japanese Buddhism. Located in an 800 m high valley amid the eight peaks of the mountain (which was the reason this location was selected, in that the terrain is supposed to resemble a lotus plant), the original monastery has grown into the town of Kōya, featuring a university dedicated to religious studies and 120 temples, many of which offer lodging to pilgrims.
You will use public transportation or taxi/tour bus.
