Shojoshin-in Buddhist Temple Stay
This is a little snapshot of Shojoshin-in Buddhist Temple, located on Mt Koya, south of Osaka in Japan. The video was taken just walking around the temple. There are a couple of photos from around the sleeping quarters and the grounds too.
I would highly recommend staying here. Just don’t do what I did, which was bring three carnivorous men in their early 20s. The Temple is 100 percent vegetarian. I warned my companions and their complaints subsided as they chowed down at McDonald’s in Osaka the next day.
Okunoin’s cemetery next door is a highlight of the area. Make sure to look out for the SONY lot.
