Journey to Koyasan

Glad my phone’s still here; wallet,too. There are no locks on doors here, at the 900 year old Rengejoin Buddhist temple on the sacred Koyasan mountain. During evening meditation, my phone and wallet were left unattended for a couple of hours. 
I left behind most of mainstream civilization. This being modern-advanced Japan, however, there is still a stronger WiFi connection at the top of this 867 meter mountain than I get in New York or Kentucky.
We have to awaken early; morning chanting begins at 0600. In Japan this means not a single second later.
Please enjoy the photos from my journey into the mountains. More photos may always be found at
Now, about that traditional, communal men’s bath—yeah, don’t know yet if that’s going to happen…
