    Gorgeous!I was shocked to see the second shot which is one of the most beautiful and spiritual places I have ever seen! Koyasan, the resting place of Kobo Daishi.He founded Shingon Buddhism in the ninth century.
    Koyasan is a large group of temples on top of mountains that you can only reach by a funicular or long treacherous trails.My husband and stayed at a monastery there in ’95. The stone torii(1 of 100s) between the giant trees is the path to the temple shown with the lanterns lit.Legend has it he meditates in sleep until the Future Buddha appears. Monks change his clothes and feed him every day.
