Standard Japanese Style Shared Bath Room
Stayed 1 night in March 2017
Disappointing!! ”
Doesn't feel like a temple lodging at all rather disappointing and overpriced Ryokan stay. Have been travelling around Japan for 2 weeks and enjoyed much nicer and cheaper overnight stays at Ryokan. You'd be lucky to see one monk during your whole stay; meals equally disappointing. would not recommend for what it claims to be and the price it charges!!!

Good place to experience living in Ryokan”
We stayed there for one night only. The room is very traditional but comfortable. They provide us with some hot water to make green tea which we love so much! In the morning, there will be morning prayers - it's optional but since we're there, why not. Then, we are served with breakfast at the dining hall. It's very traditional, we sit on the floor infront of the meals served by the monks. You can ask to refill your rice and green tea :D The bathroom is an open shared bathroom and only can be used in the morning - no idea why. Luckily we arrived at night, the staff give us a chance to use the bathroom comfortably. But don't worry, the toilets are available all the time. However, I would really advice not to arrive in Koyasan at night since there's no bus operating and no one there to ask directions - if you needed to. We arrived at 8pm, but it feels like it's already midnight. Overall, the accommodation is very comfortable and is a good place to experience living in a ryokan.

memorable experience, but the temple provided only the basics”
Koyasan was beautiful and definitely with a visit. However,the temple itself felt like a basic hotel with a temple sign on it. The atmosphere was cold and unforgiving. The dinner was only adequate and was far from what I expected. I do struggle to understand how the high costs were justified.

Standard Japanese Style Shared Bath Room
Stayed 1 night in June 2016
Family overnight in Koyasan”
The Sekishoin is well located in Koya, close enough to main sites. The staff was helpful, they booked us a dinner in Miyasan restaurant with great food. We would have never found the place ourselves and we were even given a lift to the place. The morning seremony was interesting and the breakfast average, however not worth the money in my opinion, especially for a family with 'food-challenged' kids. The great downside were low hygiene standards both in the room (it had not been vacuumed) and in bathrooms. Also, we only discovered the garden when we were leaving - apparently most rooms have access to the garden (we didn't) so if you do book, please check if you can have a room with a terrace to garden. That would have improved our overall experience of the place.

Didn't feel very authentic”
Location is good, dinner was delicious and heating worked well
I spent two nights at Sekishoin and had booked a room with a private bathroom. Upon arrival, I was informed that my room wasn't available and I only got a room with a shared bathroom. To make up for it, I got a free dinner - which was delicious but seemed not to be a big deal as the many many rows of empty spots in the dining halls suggested that practically everyone got dinner there. The whole place was freezing, making dinner a bit uncomfortable but the heating in the room worked okay. As I was there, there were several, large tourist groups - it all felt like a tourist attraction only and even though it was a fun experience, it was certainly not a spiritual one.
