Fantastic Candle Night Of Kongobuji Temple At World Heritage 'Koyasan'

1000m above the sea level. Kongobuji Temple of Koyasan. At the time of moon viewing, the precinct is wrapped with solemn atmosphere, and you can enjoy fantastic scene.
Mizuki-kai (moon viewing party while listening to music): October 6th to 8th in 2017, you can see the candles in the precinct for free. But usually, they don't lighten up.

An Elegant Stone Garden 'Banryu-tei' As Large As 2340㎡

One of the highlights of Kongobuji Temple, is a Japanese stone garden 'Banryu-tei'. Shirawaka Pebbles express the sea of clouds, and granite big stones express two dragons floating on the clouds. I want you to appreciate it with peaceful mind from a tasteful corridor of the temple.

Nearby Things To Do

Danjo Garan

Turn The Depository Of The Scriptures, And Make The Grace Bigger

It's a depository of scriptures built by Bifukumon-in for her husband Emperor Toba, and it's now well known as a spiritual spot of grace. If you push it and go around one time, you can receive the grace as much as you read the scriptures! Don't forget to visit here in Koyasan.

Koyasan Daimon Gate

Daimon, An Entrance Gate For World Heritage 'Koyasan'

You see this Daimon at first when you visit Koyasan and you'll be surprised at the impressing size as high as 25 meters! The sacred place begins from here, so I felt tensed up.
