Mount Koya, or Koya-san (高 野山) is a sacred mountain in the Wakayama Prefecture, south of Osaka, and is the religious capital of a branch of Buddhism: Shingon School.
Set in ancient cedar forests on a plateau at 800 m altitude, the site is surrounded by eight peaks, making it look like a Lotus flower and its petals, a key element in Buddhist symbolism.
Most revered Shingon Buddhist site of Japan, it welcomes each year more than 1 million pilgrims.
