This friendly temple, close to Okuno-in, is where you can take part in morning prayers and observe the morning fire ceremony. The price covers a simple tatami room with a TV, as well as a good vegetarian dinner and breakfast served in-room. From the cable-car terminus, take the bus for Okuno-in and get off at the Karukayado stop. Eko-in is several hundred meters east along the main road. Several of the younger monks speak good English.
