Tourist attractions Mount Koya

Mount Koya is located in the Wakayama prefecture of the Kansai region, not far from Osaka, and is covered by dense forests and eight peaks. It is the most sacred place of Shingon Buddhism and, therefore, the main destination for pilgrimage and prayer for the faithful of this branch of Buddhism.

It is a beautiful place and ideal for visiting all year round, as it has numerous historical and cultural attractions surrounded by a privileged natural environment.
