How many people can claim to have stayed in a temple complex with more than 800 years of history behind it? Well, you can soon! Kongo Sanmai-in functions both as a temple and ryokan.
The rooms have the finest Japanese tatami floors, dark brown short-legged tables, shoji windows and futons. They also feature air conditioning, Wi-Fi, a TV, a safe and a toilet. The bathroom itself is in the hallway and is shared with others.
Outside your room, you can enjoy the beautiful Japanese garden with its pretty rhododendrons, maples, bonsai trees and small ponds.
In the morning, you can choose to attend the monks’ morning prayer, after which a Buddhist, vegetarian meal will be served.
