Great upgraded rooms and magical garden
It was nearly empty so we were upgraded. Usually I think there would be a lot of people. Rooms were excellent and service good. Food was simple but for the price I can’t complain.

Wonderful stay
Was a wonderful stay at Sekisho-in. Room was very clean, spacious and comfortable. Food was very good and we were made to feel very welcome. The temple was a lovely experience and the town of Koyasan is just so beautiful.

10/10 Exceptional

The amenities exceeded expectations. The room was larger than expected. We had a four futon room with three futons setup. It would have been a bit tight with four. The room had a living area, a sleeping area, a garden viewing area, and a balcony. We did not opt for the private bathroom. We may have stayed during a slow night (Early Jan) because we still had the shared public bath to ourselves after dinner, and we enjoyed a nice soak. I saw an older review saying there are no hair dryers. They have hair dryers now. The dinner and breakfast was good as well. If you're not used to Japanese vegetarian dishes, you might find the food lacking. It's a lot of radishes, bamboo shoots, seaweed/kelp, tofu, squash, rice, and mochi. Most of it is served cold with unlimited warm rice and hot tea. I thought it was quite good. The morning ceremony was a great experience. The monks will encourage you to do the incense offering. A booklet in your room will explain what to do. Read and research beforehand as it's not explained during the ceremony. Overall, I'm glad we stayed here. It was a good experience. I did not get to interact with the monks. I wish I was able to do this to learn more about Koyasan; however, I understand most of them do not speak English.

Nice reasonably priced place to stay in Koyasan. Location - perfect -close to okunoin cemetery and temples. Room - sufficient futon setup with a low table with kettle and tea. Heater in room - heats up fast - good because the common areas are outside temperature. Don't run heater all night, but not needed just spark up in the morning and instant heat. Like camping :-) Arrival - checked in at ~12 noon . They were organized and ready for us - excellent. Little english spoken - but not a problem - we got all the info we needed for the temple stay. Amenities - lots of shared bathroom /washup areas. We used the hot bath rooms to clean up/soak/warm up - it was great! (onsen like) There are two mens and two ladies bath/onsen rooms. Very nice. Honour system coffee machine for morning. Food - very creative and tasty vegetarian dinner 5:30 (extra fee booked with room - do it - it's a good experience) Breaky was at ~7:15 -7:30 after morning service - which was also good to do (6:50AM). NOTE . I booked the dinner after the original booking via email - but they had not record of it - or lost in translation. We were able to book dinner as we arrived at 11:45. dinner bookings taken until 12 noon of same day. Best to book at hotel booking time. FYI - We left right after breakfast to catch a 8:11 AM bus right outside the temple to get back to Tokyo that same day. Easy (but multiple) transit back to Osaka then Tokyo

6/10 Good

Temple stay experience wasn't really immersive since there were many other tourists so the experience didn't feel personalised. Wished that the service was warmer. The food for both dinner and breakfast were mediocre. Dishes that are supposed to be hot/warm (e.g. tempura) were already cold by the time guests arrived at the dining hall (there are preset dining hours). I stayed in the new hall which is a long walk in but the facilities are new and WiFi was surprisingly strong. Heater in room! Best thing to have since Koyasan can get really cold. No hairdryer provided.

I enjoyed it very much. Air conditioner was broken, but I just moved the futon to the room with a heater. Garden is beautiful. Dinner was good. Breakfast was simple. Bathroom attached to the room was so new and clean. Great alone bath time. I came in a bit late, but they had my dinner still waiting for me. I'm glad I stayed here.
