Koyasan is an intricate, complicated cultural, historical and religious entity, with a richness which requires deep interpretation and study. I was very fortunate to a spend a short time gaining insights into and learning the stories of Koyasan from Ms. Kaori. She served as an excellent teacher on historical and current Buddhist practices and the relationship between Shinto and Buddhism. Her engaging personality and focus took the chill from the cold, driving rain of that day on the mountain.
