Fire ceremony at Ekoin in Koya-san. There are temples and shrines that have accommodation facilities called shukubo in Japan that attract 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. Also Ekoin has morning prayer services and fire burning ceremonies that visitors can observe.
