MONASTERY RETREAT IN JAPAN
Spirituality seekers curious about Buddhism, its health benefits and how monks live, can experience all this first-hand at Japan’s Mount Koya Monastery in Koyasan.
Leading Asia travel specialist Wendy Wu Tours’ new guided trip to the destination allows outsiders to rub shoulders with monks, live and learn about their modest lifestyles and religion, join in with morning and evening prayers, and meditate with the monks.
Gourmet vegetarian food and hot spring visits are also part of the package. See wendywutours.com.au.
