Temple lodgings at Mt.Shigi

2024/01/04

The whole mountain is a sanctuary, and like Mont Saint-Michel in France, once you step inside the area, you are in a different world.

After getting out of the car, the temple lodgings is located at the end of a cobblestone road that cars cannot enter.
The cobblestone path branches off and is like a maze.
The paths are lit by lanterns at night, creating a wonderful atmosphere.
Only guests are privileged to see these lanterns.
When you arrive at the temple lodgings, a monk will show you around.
Even though it is called a shukubo, there is wifi and,
You can also choose between Shojin (vegetarian) and  kaiseki(multi-course) cuisine, ensuring a confortable stay.
At night, you can walk around the temple grounds under the lanterns.
In the ealry morning, while it is still dark, embark on a spiritual journey with the morning Goma fire ritual at the lodging, followed by a walk to the main hall where you can witness the breathtaking sunrise.

Participate in the temple’s prayer ritual, adding a spiritual touch to your stay.
This is a special experience only for guests, and you will feel like you have been recharged and reborn.
In the main hall, you can also have the special experience of walking step by step along the wall in total darkness.

On the way there, you pass through such total darkness that you cannot tell whether your eyes are open or closed, and when you see the light and step outside you realise how grateful you are for the light and the sun.

Situated between Osaka and Nara, Mt. Shigi is easily accessible, just a one-hour drive from Nara.
