Words cannot truly express our experience at Henjoson-in/Koyasan. Arriving in the dark of night only glimpsing slivers of the illuminated temples through the towering Japanese cedar trees. This set the mood perfectly. We were warmly greeted upon arrival at Henjoson and checked into our beautiful room with minimal fuss. I really don\'t want to give too much away. It was the element of surprise and discovery that made our stay so enchanting. I would rate 6 stars if I could!

We had excellent ryokan rooms at Henjo-son. The food, vegetarian, of course, was excellent. Grounds, staff support (though with limited English), were also terrific. Location, quite close to the entrance to the graveyard of graveyards, also a nice plus.

excellent!

The best place we could\'ve stayed! A wonderful accommodation, extremely welcoming. The room had a view of the gorgeous garden. Dinner and breakfast were delicious. December is a bit chilly and nothing could\'ve have been better than the green tea waiting for us. :) The onsen is magnificent, a gret wy to freshen up and warm up! We also attended the morning prayer. While I don\'t know what was being said, it was a very grounding experience. They even held our bags the day we checked out so we could do some more exploring before we left.
