Amazing Experience! Kumagaiji is awesome and educational.”

We didn't know what to expect, but hoped for a rewarding and educational experience. We were met byamonk and treated so kindly on our arrival after an 11 hour trip to get from Iriomote Island to Kumagaiji. The staff were wonderful! Everyone was so nice and welcoming. We truly enjoyed Kanji-san's explanations. He made us feel at ease and lightened the mood with levity and kindness. The entire experience at Kumagaiji was first class, and I would love to stay there again. The town is beautiful, but this location is particularly special; the age of the temple and authenticity is amazing. We also enjoyed the little touches with hot tea and refreshment brought to our room upon arrival. During the morning ceremonies, the monk was so welcoming and helped us understand and participate in the prayers. We loved every minute of our stay and highly recommend Kumagaiji. Our room was a family style room on the 1st floor which surrounded the temple's main garden. Just Beautiful!

High point”

Koyasan was the high point of our trip to Japan, mainly for the experience we had at Kumagaiji. We spent one night and slept comfortably on the Japanese traditional bedding. The 6:30 a.m. prayer service was definitely worth the early wake up call (clanging temple bells) and something you must experience if you come to Koyasan. We booked a "private toilet". This turned out to mean a single toilet in a small room down the hall which was shared by 2 other guest rooms. The alternative is toilet facilities in "college dorm" style. Very nice Onsen, hot bath facility with separate shower. The monk at the front desk speaks fluent English. Highly recommend.

What a great stay for 1 night! Exceeded my expectations with the hospitality provided by the monks, and such a delicious dinner and breakfast with the other guests. Please take the trip to Koya - it is worth it!

Wow - such a great experience”

I have been to Koyasan several times, but this was my first stay at Kumagaiji. What a treat. The staff were very friendly and helpful, explaining everything on my arrival, both about the room, and how to join the morning prayer ceremony and fire ceremony, if I wanted. The food was both beautiful and tasty. And of course, it's a very short walk to the entrance to beautiful Okunoin cemetery, my big reason for returning here so many times. I would highly recommend a stay here. Enjoy!

Hostel Stay or Shukubo?”

Kumagaiji is too well-equipped, you feel like you stay in a hostel more than a temple. everything is great, they have a english speaking staff will show and explain when you check in, ensure you understand all rule & all facilities in the temple. Dinner is shojin ryori, a vegie meal for monk, but Kumagiji have modified to fit the favour for all guest from all around the world. The food is great and amazing, we love the tomato so much. Do miss the morning class at 6.30am, if you choose to stay in a temple, then you should not miss this experience. Instead of saying this is a morning class, it feel like a demonstration for the guests. The staff is helpful and pleasant, bedding is so comfy.
