  8. Choishi-michi, the 24 km original path leading to #Koyasan. Every 109 meters there is marker leading the way to this esoteric Buddhist mountain village, with commemoration shrines to monks, warriors and great Japanese citizens of the past. Under the thick, century-old cedar trees, walking this path was one of the most peaceful and spiritual experiences I’ve ever had. #japan #zen #mystical

     

  9. Our last Japanese #breakfast. #Koyasan #japan

     

  10. Fukuchi-in #Buddhist temple in #Koyasan. We admired the zen gardens, participated in a traditional ceremony (at 6am), ate only vegetarian meals, which meant tofu in every form possible, and at night, had a dip in the steaming hot “onsen,” baths. A mystical experience. #IThinkImTurningJapanese #matteoandnadiagoeast
