Wonderful stay at Hoon-in in Koyasan
Solo traveler from UK, November 2017I wanted to thank you for your amazing service. I had a wonderful stay in Koyasan. The trip was easy with your advice. The Hoon-in was wonderful. The people are so welcoming, the food was amazing and the place is very clean.
Nice hospitality stay at Hoon-in in Mt.Koya
2 persons from Italy, April 2018We liked the hospitality and the silence. The room was very big and nice; all the structure was very clean.
They can leave the futon until check out

The futons mattresses were too thin. Vegan meals only. Expensive
We had so much fun staying at Hoon-in in Mt.Koya
2 persons from USA, April 2018We had so much fun staying at Hoon-in. Loved the friendly staff, attending morning prayer service with the monks, and using the public baths (even though they were indoors). We enjoyed exploring the rest of Mount Koya as well, especially the cemetery.
The tatami mat sleeping rooms could have been a bit more comfortable. The sleeping mats weren't very thick, and the pillows weren't too comfortable either. We enjoyed the experience of the communal eating and tasting all the different dishes, but the food wasn't incredible.
