Shojin Ryori

Shojin ryori (Buddhist cuisine) has been handed down through the generations along with the long history of Koyasan.

Shojin ryori is based on cooking methods that continue to this day: Goho (raw, boiled, baked, fried, and steamed); Gomi (soy sauce, vinegar, salt, sugar, and spicy hot); and Goshoku (red, blue, black, yellow, and white). At the lodging, we offer “furimai ryori,” a banquet food served after the monks’ ceremonies.

No meat, fish, or other fish or raw meat odors are used, so it can also be enjoyed by vegetarians and vegans.

Breakfast and dinner will be served in your room, while guests of four or more will be served in a separate room.
Please enjoy your meal at your own pace.


We also accept lunch reservations.
When you visit Koyasan, stop by to enjoy shojin ryori in a quiet room inside the temple.

Lunch is only available by reservation. Please call us to reserve by 3 pm the day before.
(Lunch time is 11 am to 1 pm)
