Thank you very much for your participation

KCCN offers Wednesday Tours from April to October with the fee of 1000 yen per person.
Your donation covers both your transportation on the tour and the guides' transportation to and from Koyasan.
Unfortunately Japan has had a hard time on tourism because of many natural disaster and the accident of Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant.

So many foreign tourists cancel their trip to Japan even here about 700km away from Fukushima.

We conclude Wednesday Tours of 2011 but we're still offering the Custom Tour which is planned out just for you depend on your itinerary and the interest any days of the year.
So if you ever come to Koyasan, please feel free to ask us. With our guiding you can enjoy Koyasan a lot more.

We're looking forward to seeing you anytime.

Rice Cake Scatter

In autumn in Koyasan, you may see many people gathering with some plastic bags or with a big apron spreading in front of the shrines. They are waiting for rice cake being scattered.
Appreciating the autumn harvest, they offer their harvest (mainly the products made of rice) in front of the shrine and share the great joy of the harvest.
So once you meet this occasion, why don't you try to join.
But I'm afraid you may be very surprised to see Japanese people having waited quietly for a long time suddenly changed into wild crowds only getting some rice cake.
Please protect yourself from excited Japanese who scramble for rice cake.(by KQ)
