On August 12, 2013, the Travel Agency JIC provides an additional, payable excursion to Koyasan.
Koyasan was registered into the World Cultural Heritage of UNESCO in 2004. It is a small "religion city." On the top of the mountain with an altitude of nine hundred meters, it is crowded with more than one hundred temples.
Kuukai, the founder of the Shingon denomination of Japanese Buddhism, created this holy place at the beginning of the ninth century. There are much cultural assets, such as the Daimon Gate and the Kongobu-ji Temple, in Koyasan. Since Koyasan is on the top of a mountain, it is cooler than Osaka 5 to 6 degrees, and many tourists visit also in summer.
