Travels around Japan: Koya-san


I mostly write poetry on this blog, but I also enjoy writing travel articles about Japan, a beautiful country I discover new corners of every day.

Here’s one I wrote about Mount Koya, misty mountain home of Shingon Buddhism. Let me know what you think!

  1. This is a wonderful story Caroline, really taking the reader there. The Gomo video is fascinating. A friend has stayed there like yourself as a guest for 3 days. It is one of the most spiritual experiences he has had.
