    Koyasan is an incredible place. The temple of Joklin is very special and morning service with monks was inspiring. But i was not impressed with general staff and services for guests.. it seemed to be all about the money.

    Top Shukubo in Koyasan

    This is my 4th time visiting Koyasan and Jokiin is certainly one of the best shukubo in Koyasan in terms of service and food! This is also one of the few shukubos in Koyasan that has real ensuite facility rooms.

    I'm glad I chose to stay in Jokiin. I was looking for a small and peaceful temple lodging and Jokiin was that and more. Staff are welcoming and helpful, especially Mie. The premises are well maintained. My room is lovely and comfortable. Food is delicious and prepared with care.

    Jokiin is a Buddhist temple and a shukubo for guests, so it doesn't really lend itself to a typical hotel rating. It's not very big, so it's relatively quiet and peaceful. The staff are friendly and helpful and speak good English and they explained everything very clearly. The food is plain, but all you need. Attending morning prayers was an unforgettable experience. We hope to return to Jokiin.

    The price we paid (14,000 Yen for 1 night, 2 futons in the room) was expensive, considering we had a shared bathroom and there was only 1 shower, to be shared among all the guests in the temple.
