A not so distant dream, our visit to the Okunoin cemetery. The red caps on buddha’s head are placed by visitors to bless the unborn child. #japantrip . . . #travelawesome #okunoin #buddhism #travelawesome #travelblogger #roadtrip #unesco #japan #traveljapan #outdoor #forest #hiking #adventure #wanderlust #darlingescapes #doyoutravel #natgeo #natgeotravelpic #koyasan #torii #gate #path #spiritual #buddha #shotoniphone
Okunoin Cemetery, Mount Kōya. Did I mention it is best to visit this place either at night for the eerie atmosphere or very early before the crowds for a better experience? You do not want to be strolling behind a couple of tourists eating crackers. I have nothing against eating crackers, not even eating them while walking. But in a cemetery it puts me off a bit. Observed these folks and the crowds when I visited the cemetery in my second time when I was with my tour group around and it was around noon. Thus, I realized the stark difference between the experiences different time in the day though the same place. Later I learned that there were even guided night tours by monks, and thought that is quite a good option too. Just letting you know. You might ask this at the temple if you are staying in one of them. . #okunoin #koya #koyasan #japan

Thousands of charming little statues dressed in colorful bibs and lovingly-made caps are scattered throughout Okunoin Cemetery in Koyasan. Known as Jizos, they are the guardians of travelers, lost souls and especially unborn children or children who died at a young age. #japan #ig_japan #bestjapanpics #team_jp #igersjp #pics_jp #visitjapanjp #travel japan#tokyocameraclub #art_of_japan #travelphotography #travelgram #instatravel #jizo #koyasan #okunoin #buddhism

Early morning stroll at this 1,400 year old Japanese cemetery wasn’t as dramatic as the midnight stroll the previous night. . . #japan #sakkura #okunoin #okunoincemetery #unesco #mountkoya #cemetery #throwback

#tbt to a peaceful walk along the forest cemetery in the mountains of #Japan - Okunoin's cemetery, the largest in Japan, with over 200,000 tombstones lined along almost two kilometres. Leads to a beautiful Buddhist temple. #travel #mountkoya #koyasan #wanderlust #okunoin #neverstopexploring
Okunoin cemetery, Mount Koya, Japan. A truly spiritual experience, even for those who aren't religious. #japan #okunoin #visitjapanjp #seetheworld

Went on a night tour of Okunoin, the largest cemetery in Japan and home to the mausoleum of religious leader Kōbō Daishi (founder of Shingon Buddhism) who is not dead but instead eternally meditating. #okunoin #okunoincemetery #奥の院 #高野山 #koyasan
All over Okunoin you find these Jizo Bosatsu statues, with bibs and little crochet red hats on their heads. I wondered why. I found out that the clothes are put on Jizo by sorrowing parents, whose children are waiting on the bank of purgatory. They believe that Jizo will protect them until the arrival of Miroku Buddha. I'm not sure how accurate this is, for my source is quick googling. But still, it's clear to me - the symbols change from one religion to another - but they remain representations of how we all just try to deal the best we can with this perplexing condition of being human. #deepinthought #spirituality #emotion #humandcondition #okunoin #koyasan #jouiinjapan #japan #travel #religionsoftheworld #learnnewthings #cemitery #unesco #unescoworldheritage
Buddhist Shingon monks bring food to the mausoleum of Kobo Daishi during the daily shojingu ritual at dawn. Kobo Daishi lived from 774 - 845. His followers don't believe he's dead but that he's in a deep state of meditation. #japan #ig_japan #bestjapanpics #team_jp #igersjp #pics_jp #visitjapanjp #travel #tokyocameraclub #art_of_japan #travelphotography #travelgram #instatravel #koyasan #buddhism #shingon #okunoin #bbc_travel #shojingu #写真好きな人と繋がりたい  #インスタ映え #ファインダー越しの私の世界
奥の院へ。大師様も歩いた道、一の橋からしっかり歩きます。苔と歴史の芸術が続く。最後の御廟は圧巻。絶対に体験すべき場所。帰り道唐突に出てくるヤクルト、、シロアリ⁇日本って奥深いなぁ。#koyasan #okunoin #高野山 #奥の院 #ヤクルトすごい #シロアリ供養 #日本すごい #japan #弘法大師
念願の高野山。全てが想像以上に大きく圧倒される。よく見ると広目天の胸元には蝉、増長天にはトンボが止まっていて可愛い。今も多くの僧侶が修行するこの地ではふと目をあげるとお坊さまが自然に祈る姿が。感動✨#koyasantemple #koyasan #kukai #danjogaran #kongoubuji #okunoin #高野山 #壇上伽藍 #奥の院 #お坊さん #japan #金剛峯寺 #蝉 #トンボ
After the copious Shojin ryori meal, I had to go for a walk to digest the experience. Okonuin, the largest cemitery in Japan, is magical especially at twighlight. Kobo Daishi, the Buddhist monk who founded Koyasan 1200 years ago, is believed to be in "eternal meditation" here. The 2km path that leads up to his mausoleum is lined with stunning century old conifer trees, and over 200.000 gravestones. It's one of the most beautiful places I've seen, with nature intertwined with symbolic representations of the deepest human experience. #okunoin #cemitery #koyasan #japan #religion #religionsoftheworld #discover #travelmodeon #jouiinjapan #shingonbuddhism #buddhism #kobodaishi #twilight #spirituality #unesco #unescoworldheritage

📷🇯🇵 << One must know that there is a path at the end of the road >>🀄 . El Cementerio de Mount Koya en Japón. Pasear por ese lugar fue increíble. Llegue en un horario medianamente temprano y fui directo al cementerio que estaba lleno de la niebla matutina! Tengo para hacer una serie muy linda de este lugar! 🙌 . Hago un breve resumen de este lugar para los que no vieron las stories. . Es uno de los lugares mas sagrados de Japón, donde hay una pequeña ciudad-templo y el cementerio mas grande e importante de Japón, arriba en el bosque de la montaña de Koyasan (al sur de Osaka). La importancia del cementerio se debe a que en este lugar se encuentra el mausoleo de Kobo Daishi, quien introdujo el Budismo Shingon a Japón y se cree que aun vive en eterna meditacion. Al ser enterrado cercano a el se cree que se puede alcanzar la salvación, es por eso que hay mas de 200.000 tumbas, desde monjes a señores feudales y personas famosas de la actualidad. . #tom_bigtrip . . . . . #igworldclub #instagram #instagood #urbanandstreet #street_vision #streetactivity #streetshared #streetphotography #streetphotographers #streetclassics #timeless_streets #shotzdelight #ourcolourdays #timeoutsociety #hbouthere #ourplanetdaily #fatalframes #koyasan #visitjapanjp #japan #discovertokyo #japanlife #instagramjapan #visitjapan #team_jp_ #japan_vacations #mountkoya #Okunoin
Koyasan Okunoin, Japan - May 2017 . Biggest cementery in Japan dates from 9th Century, located in the woods of Mount Koya, to the south from Osaka and close to Kumano Pillgrimage route as well. It has more than 200000 graves, including important feudal lords and other public personalities of Japan. Highly recommend to visit it at the night surrounded by silence and lights of the cementery path. . #japan #koyasan #cementery #forest #graves #offborders #wild #pics #photo #frame #okunoin #mountains #woods #nature #japon #2017 #traveling #trip #nonstop #lifestyle #shots #traveler #travel #travelstragram #earthpix #phlearn #lensbible #wonderfulplaces #igbest_shotz #artofdestinations
