I do want to stress the following:
* All are welcome to visit. Regardless of Religion, Nationality, Language skills & so forth.
*When you ask, " Where should I go next in Japan after Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto? "
I will say, " Go to Koyasan & On your next visit just go to Tokyo & Koyasan."
* We discovered that the Spiritual, Traditional, Harmonious Buddhist Japan really does exist & can be fully enjoyed.
Yes. This Japan does exist & it's in Koyasan, The Spiritual Heart of Japan.
