A registered World Heritage site and one of Japan’s sacred Buddhist locations up in the mountain 800 meters high.

After a long climb up the mountain trail, you will come across Japan’s most famous sacred area, Mt. Koya. At the center of the 117 shrines and the many practicing monks all gathered here is the Kongobu-ji Temple. It is worth visiting to see the elegant streetscape with various buildings surrounding the main hall in the center.
