玄関の写真

Ekoin is on the bus line from the cable-car station, the closest bus stop is "Karukayadomae" which is 2 minutes walk to Ekoin. It's easy to walk to all the sights and just steps from the entrance to the Okunoin cemetery, because Ekoin is on main road and in central location of Koyasan.
You could also learn Ajikan meditation and Buddhist sutra writing. (Previous reservation is required.)
Feel free to contact us for any questions.


The Origin of Ekoin


Dosho, KoboDaishi's own disciple, built Ekoin almost 1200 years ago. "Eko" originally means "Transference of Merit."
