Best way to visit Koyasan's many points of interest

I was lucky to have Nobu as my guide in Koyasan. He is very kind, thoughtful and knowledgeable. We visited Garan, Kongobuji and some other places and during the tour he told me so much about temples and Buddhism etc. Highly recommended.

A must do in Koyasan

What a wonderful experience and a nice informative tour! Getting to know inside information is clearly a plus and you also get to ask information about Buddhism from a specialist if you are a layperson. This tour made me want to know more about Buddhism. It was fun and Nobu also gave me a few tips on what else to visit/ do in Koyasan. I can’t thank him enough and would highly recommend this tour to anybody visiting Koyasan! It was one of the highlights of my trip to Japan!

Monk tour vs “regular” tour

Very interesting and informative tour. Learning more about this sect of Buddhism and the spiritual significance of the area was enlightening. Highly recommend a monk tour instead of “regular” tour.
