Koya-san 11.22.10

Koya-san is a mountain that is famous for its temples. And as my co-workers later said, a place that caters to the elderly.
Our first stop was a temple located at the other end of an enormous graveyard. There were countless family grave sites located within the graveyard as well as a grave site owned by Panasonic. I’m not really sure who got buried there… maybe past presidents?

The temple itself wasn’t anything special. Though at this point unless the temple has giant robot battles on its premises I don’t think I would find any temple special.

Following the trip to the temple we went back to the temple where we were spending the night. Yes, there are so many temples on Koya-san that temples offer lodging to travelers. It seems it would be just as accurate to say that Koya-san is famous for having nothing but temples.
