KOYA-SAN: Hotel, please

Jump to last reply

For one night, I'd rather not stay in a Temple--no offense to Japanese tradition, but I don't want to attend a service, certainly not one at 6 a.m. Nor do I want to eat a vegetarian dinner, though bless those who do. Are there alternative accommodations in the town, like a hotel, within walking distance of the temples, cemetery (Okuno-in) and monasteries? If I were to stay in a hotel, do I need a car to access hotel upon arriving; once in town, would like to drop off a carry-on bag, and then visit the sites and after site seeing, and maybe eating, return to "hotel."? Would rather not rent car, but prefer to travel from Kyoto by train. Am frustrated trying to get a lay of the land, so to speak. Have spent as much time trying to "figure out" Koya-San--with no luck so far--than almost the rest of a three-week trip. Need help, people. Thanks in advance.
