Tour: #472635, 1 Day Private Round Trip - Osaka to Mount Koya, Osaka, Japan    view tour
Date: Oct 10/18

This tour was another highlight of our two weeks in Japan. Yuta was incredibly kind, going out of his way to meet us at our hotel to ensure we would not get lost. We learned so much from him on the tour. He was incredibly friendly, informative and organized a perfect day for us including a very memorable lunch. We enjoyed this day very much and highly recommend a visit to Mt. Koya with Yuya. Though not always mentioned in travel guides, this should be a stop for any visitor near Osaka.

This was, from a learning perspective, one of the most rewarding days of my life. Yuta is a consummate teacher who provided invaluable insights into the lessons of Kobo Daishi and Shingon thought and practices. His knowledge of the practices of other Buddhist sects provided a rich perspective of Buddhism in Japan yesterday and today. Thank you to Yuta for starting me down the very long road towards a deeper understanding of Buddhist thoughts and practices.
