Iga-Ueno / Koyasan 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / LODGING IN KOYAZAN / Passing Through
Koyasan has many, many temples, and it was always a delightful walk from Fukuchi-in to wherever we had decided to go that day. We would visit the temples and then train on the grounds near them, providing some entertainment for the Japanese tourists there (we rarely saw a European). The photos above were taken while we were on our way for some ninjutsu training near one of the older temples on the mountain. 

Continuing our strolls around Koyasan. On the left is Scott, Stephen Hayes, Jan, Barry and Getan.

We normally walked to an old wooden temple in the back reaches of Kyoyasan to do some training. To the left Jean-Pierre, Getan, and Jan stand waiting to start.
