    ... this has been going on and the amount of erosion and natural shifting of the earth in this area of steep unstable mountains and bubbling natural hot springs.... it wouldn't be hard to imagine that different generations chose different paths.

    ... is unusual in that the top of the mountain is flat, allowing for a large temple complex to be constructed here. The flat portion is surrounded by eight mountains, said to be situated like a lotus flower, which is what buddha always sits on, so it was and is perfect for a temple location. Fudoin is one of the oldest temples in Koya, and the current building here is over 450 years old, but was established over 1,100 years ago. It has been a ...

It's particularly nice because the path is dotted with over 100 small shrines which we used to measure our progress - although technically I think we were meant to pray or perform some kind of ritual at each one.
