This tour includes…
Attending a special ritual in Okunoin (this ritual has a history of more than 1200 years)
② Walking ancient pilgrimage trails (nearly flat forest path)
③ Lunch with a spectacular view of the World Heritage Kii Mountains (on a beautifully decorated table in forest)

 

“Women Pilgrims Route” is said to be “the most beautiful trail” among the mountain paths around Koyasan. After attending a ritual in Okunoin, we are going to hike some of the “Women Pilgrims Route” that even forest experts recommendAt the end of the tour you will eat local specialties while watching the spectacular panorama of the mountains registered as World Heritage Sites.

This hiking is not aimed to climb to the top of the mountain, it is an easy nature walk. You can enjoy the mountain while feeling nature and wind that you cannot have in city life. Forest smell, sound of birds and wind, the transitions of nature every season….. Opening the senses and walking through the forest path make your mind and body be filled with exhilaration.

If you have a healthy leg, anyone can feel free to participate. It is a tour that does not require technique like climbing.

The guide is a monk or a chief of temple office who have a license to guide in Koyasan and will introduce the nature of Koyasan and the teachings of esoteric Buddhism with the viewpoint and knowledge unique to monks living in Koyasan. It will be a different explanation and route from the night tour, therefore, it is also recommended for those who participated in the night tour.

 

 

First of all, we will gather in front of a public toilet at the Naka-no-hashi parking lot and head towards Okunoin to attend “Shojingu” which is a daily ritual of delivering meals twice a day to the Grand Master, believed to be in eternal meditation. Along the way, the monk explains various story such as explanation of company tombs, the oldest big tree, the biggest tombstone, tombs of samurai and a tomb for termites.

After visiting Okunoin, we will enter the mountain path. Although we have a bit of up and down in the beginning, we will walk for almost 30 minutes on a nearly flat forest path. Let’s experience the mysterious nature of the old pilgrimage road that Kobo Daishi Kukai walked also.

At the end of the tour, you can have a seat on chairs and enjoy lunch on a beautifully decorated table while watching the spectacular panorama of the mountains of the Kii mountain range registered as World Heritage Sites.

The lunch will be “Sasazushi bento” which is local cuisine of Koyasan. “Sasazushi” means sushi wrapped in a bamboo grass leaf. Hot drinks like green tea, coffee and tea will be provided free of charge. After lunch, you do not have to go back all the way, a car is prepared nearby to give you a lift.

 

 

* If you want, you can change the lunch to a non-vegetarian bento, please tell us at the time of reservation.
