Dear fellow travellers,
I plan to visit Koyasan in November with my husband and our 19mo baby. Right now, I'm in a dilemma where I should book my lodgings.
I'm keen to stay near Okunoin because we would like to do the night tour by Ekoin and we understand that many shukubos have curfews at night. Currently, only Sekishoin has vacancies but their reviews aren't great. A plus point is that they are really near the bus stop.
On the other hand, I can book a room at Jokiin which is really near Kongobu-ji and the town centre. This place has great reviews but I'm not sure about walking back in the dark/cold and making it in time for the curfew?
Any advice will be greatly appreciated! :)
