When travelling I always watch out for the special things, the experience that are unique and that are outside the box. In Koya-San I have found such an experience and it was one of the best of my trip! In Koya-San I’ve spend a night in a monastery and mediated with the monks, experience the morning prayers and watched a fire ceremony. Besides those already very interesting happenings I took part in a night walk at the town’s cemetery. Arriving at the most sacred place the monk accompanying us prayed for us. There are no words to describe the feeling nor the flair of the moment. More about my time here: Eine Nacht in der Stadt der Tempel – Koya-San (Japan) – currently only in German.
