Koyasan Guesthouse Kokuu has joined the Kumano Travel community!
Kokuu is a guesthouse in Koyasan, a mountain top Buddhist village and sacred site. It is located on the east side of town near the Nakanohashi entrance to the atmospheric Okunoin cemetery. The friendly, young owner has intimate local knowledge having grown up in Koyasan in a Buddhist family. The building is an original design, with a simple exterior and striking interior. When you enter through the sliding doors a distinct white hallway leads down the center of the building, open to a criss-cross of rafters and skylights. On the right is a cosy sitting area with wood burning stove. On the left is a welcoming bar. Further down the hall are doors to guestrooms (single "mountain" capsules, double, and triple rooms), toilets, and showers. Koyasan Guesthouse Kokuu has the feel of a designer mountain cabin. It is a unique option for those wishing to see Koyasan and not necessary wanting to stay in a temple.
