Located at an altitude of 867 meters and registered as a World Cultural Heritage site, “Koyasan” is a sacred place of Shingon Esoteric Buddhism. Kukai (Kobo Daishi), the giant of the religious world, opened up as a training place. Over 1200 years, many tourists visit this place across the status and sects. Among them, the Okuninin which is said to be the most sacred place, it is considered to be a sacred place where there is “Gobyo” (Mausoleum) in the place where Kukai did Nyujo (*). Kobo Daishi will welcome the pilgrims at “Ichinohashi Bridge” which is the entrance of the Okunoin, and it is said that when the worshipers come home he will see them off here.
