Wonderful Experience
! absolutely loved my stay here. The food and service was amazing, it's right next to the cemetery, and getting to see the morning ritual was an awesome experience.

I can’t really add much beyond what others have already said. The futon was strangely the most comfortable bed I have had in Japanese across five trips. It got cold overnight and I had to consult the room binder to figure out how to work the heater.

I really enjoyed my stay here. Place was really clean and beautiful. It was also located really near the bus stop. Food was delicious. As for communication, the monks spoke excellent english.

The garden view room is very beautiful! It’s wonderful to gaze upon the garden and drink tea at sunrise and sunset. The private bathroom is really amazing; it’s wood panelled with heating, a rain shower, and a bathtub with a seat built into it. It’s a lovely experience staying in the temple as well. If you have respiratory issues you should prepare antihistamines because of the incense in the temple (this applies to all the other temples in the area as well; the rooms are fine and do not have incense smoke). You can also experience Ajikan meditation, morning service and a fire ritual at Ekoin (these are of course all religious activities so skip it if you’re uncomfortable with that). I highly recommend the Okunoin night tour too! It’s very easy to go on it if you stay at Ekoin. The monks were very helpful with regard to our other tourist endeavours as well and some speak English very well :) It was a lovely stay!

Please ban photos and filming during the prayers and fire ceremony. It spoils it.
