Certain temples that have accommodation facilities are called "shukubo" in Japan. They used to be facilities for worshippers and followers. However, they have become casual places where anyone can stay. These days, shukubo are attracting attention not only as places to stay, but as places that let you experience Japanese culture. Koya-san is one of the best places to experience a temple stay in Japan. Ekoin is one of the most popular temples for this for foreign visitors. One reason is that most of the young monks speak English, and Ekoin is well accustomed to foreign visitors.
