so we went to koyasan 
8th-Nov-2008 12:44 pm

We only stayed one night in Osaka at first. The plan was to go on to Shizouka to see the suicide forest, but it it seemed to be complicated so instead we took the train up into the mountains to Koyasan, a temple area (i don't know what else to call it) there. We ended up staying in a traditional Japanese hotel there, which was really cool.

After it got dark we went for a walk to a huge cemetary in a forest there. So so so cool! There was no other people than us walking through the dark forest, and we could hear these really weird animal sounds in the trees above us. Turns out it was a kind of giant flying squirrel. Lolo was really scared hehe. There were hundreds of tomb stones, shrines and statues everywhere, all covered in moss. I don't have any photos from there though sorry. Well I do, but they are all shit so you won't see them :)

Hey. I had to write something when I saw you went to Koyasan, I've read your blog on and off for years but I just thought it was funny when you posted photos from the exact same places I went on a short (9 day) photo trip just 2 years ago. Small world!
