|Koyasan,one of the sacred sites in the Kii Mountain Range|
Set in the dense forests of the Kii Mountains overlooking the Pacific Ocean, three sacred sites – Yoshino and Omine, Kumano Sanzan, Koyasan – linked by pilgrimage routes to the ancient capital cities of Nara and Kyoto, reflect the fusion of Shinto, rooted in the ancient tradition of nature worship in Japan. Koyasan is an unprecedented religious city on a mountaintop where more than 100 temples are clustered. The most famous among them is the Kongobuji Temple.
