Mount Koya holidays

Mount Koya is one of Japan’s holiest mountains located in Wakayama Prefecture. The journey to Mount Koya takes visitors through a cedar-filled valley 800 metres above sea level, surrounded by 8 mountain peaks. In the early 9th century, the Buddhist monk Kobo Daishi founded the first temple and it has grown to more than 100 monasteries surrounding the head temple of Kongobuji.
