SpotMuro-ji Temple

Muro-ji Temple of the Shingon sect of Buddhism is situated on the mountainside of Mt. Muro. Koyasan in Wakayama Prefecture, a World Heritage site that is also the sacred site of the Shingon sect, once did not allow women to enter the mountain. In contrast, as Muro-ji has allowed women to enter, it has been called Nyonin-Koya (Female Koya). Kondo Hall, a national treasure, Hondo Hall, and a five-story pagoda stand in the precincts surrounded by trees. In spring, a profusion of pale pink rhododendrons creates a splendid sight.
