Author 'Briant' (Id 158868 ) : For over 1000 years, the monks welcome thousands of Japanese who come on pilgrimage, but also tourists. More than a million pilgrims pass through Mount Koya each year. Fifty temples can spend the night on Mount Koya. Monks lavish their lessons during the day. Dinner, vegetarian, is prepared and served by monks. After a night at the monastery, the revival took place at 5am and is done by the sound of resounding gong. It was at 5:30 the great prayer takes place, and is served the traditional breakfast, which is taken in a friendly atmosphere. This is the entrance of the temple where we spend the night.
