【Autumn Harvest festival】16th Oct at Garan Complex Monks and Koyasan residents thanked their local goddess and god who protect the land and keep this place holy, for the good harvest. After the ceremony, rice cake throwing started. Thousands of mochi (glutinous rice cakes) were thrown for good luck there are a lot of people waiting to catch as many rice cakes as possible. It was a lot of fun! Many Rice cake throw events are held in Koyasan this month. Highly recommend joining if you are in the town !! #koyasan #高野山

Ascetic training with Shingon sect monks at mount Oomine today ,where the unique Shugendo religion of Japan, a mountain asceticism incorporating Shinto and Buddhist concepts. Breathing the bracing, purifying air among these sacred mountains let us sense a portion of their ancient spirits. #koyasan #oomine #shugendo #yamabushi

Here is a story I've got to tell you...although, the first part might be familiar to some of you, the second part is more unique to Kokuu Once upon a time, Kukai was in search of a place for training and threw a "Sanko" (Three-pronged Vajra/small hand held tools for rituals) to see where it would land when he returned from Tang Dynasty China. The Sanko was caught on a pine tree ("matsu" in Japanese ), hence the tree became known as ‘Sanko no Matsu’. People even believe the Sanko might have caused this special pine tree's needles to grow in groups of three. After over 1,000 years passed, one man was searching for a place to allow all travellers and pilgrims from all over the world to visit his hometown of Koyasan at an affordable price. The idea first came to his mind when he was travelling in India. His deep connection to Koyasan flew over the sea and mountains and arrived at one place in Koyasan. When back, he saw there was a special pine tree that stood in by that spot, similar to the nearby sanko no matsu. Then, his neighbour, a kind elderly woman over 90 years old, told him that this pine tree was grown by the seed of "Sanko no Matsu." This moment was actually the birth of Koyasan Guesthouse Kokuu. Unfortunately, the special pine tree by Koyasan Guesthouse Kokuu fell due to the power of typhoon Jebi on the 4th of September. Fortunately, the root of the tree was still alive, so he decided to pull the tree straight up on the ground and cut the extra branches, as it was too heavy to set it up again. ...We hope that this pine tree will stay longer and watch over us many many more years to come. #koyasan #高野山
