Kongobuji (Koyasan)

Posted on Monday, June 27, 2011 | 0 comments

  Kongobuji is the head temple of Koyasan Shingon Buddhism. The entire area of Koyasan used to be known as Kongobuji, and there wasn't a temple by this name until 1869, when it was formed by combining 2 existing temples. The current Kongobuji is home to Japan's largest rock garden, the Banryutei.
