Js friend was leaving Japan and very kindly gave us his unfinished train pass along with some pots and pans. We used the train pass to visit Mt.Koya.

To reach Mt Koya you have to change from the train to the cable car. It’s the steepest I’ve ever been in!

At the top we purchased ¥800 all day bus tickets and jumped on the first bus. We got off at Okunoin Temple.

Mt Koya was very quiet and peaceful, we saw lots of people doing the Buddhist temple trail.
