Fudo-in is a small, quiet shukubo (temple lodging) located on a hillside near the Okunoin cemetery. Fudo-in is the main temple for a branch of the imperial family called the Yamashinas, and Bifukumonin, the Empress of Toba (1101-1145AD), was buried here. Her tomb is in the temple garden, so the imperial family always visit here when they come to Mount Koya. Fudo-in is a working temple and guests can expereince the morning prayer ceremony, which has some English translation. Accommodation is in a detached 'hanare' room, which includes a private hinoki wood bath and lavatory, and its own private terrace. Vegetarian meals are also served in the dining hall.
