Woman was not allowed to enter area of Koyasan temples for centuries

only for about last 150 years we- woman can enter Koyasan..all temples here are 1200 years old

Now I am sleeping at a temple and have  television in my room, there is sign that say "gentleman" on one door and "woman" on the other it leeds to the hot baths..
.. before there was 1200 temples here..

woman were allow to pray…outside the gates of the mountains, they could come to the outside of the plato and walk around and pray.. this paths are called Ladys walks.. not because they are easy.. today hikers use this "walks".

I will go one ladies walk tomorrow… i want to feel how it was to be left outside in the forrest in the  freezing cold to pray.
