A taxi, bullet train, subway, express train, walk, funicular, bus, and walk took us to lunch, and the start of a day which would end with a stay tonight at a Buddhist temple inn in Koyosan on a thin mat in the cold after a very vegetarian dinner served by the resident monks.
cemetery at Koyosan. A wonderful city burstng with temples, Koyosan sits in a valley between eight peaks high in the mountains of Japan. It's likened to being in the middle of a lotus flower, but in the snow. We have been carrying around long underwear and jackets throughout the first month of our trip in very heavy suitcases. Now, we're very glad we did.
To see all of the photos (lots of good ones) taken today, click on Sunday, Apr 8th, Koyosan, Japan.
