At night, it will be lit up. The shining vermilion tower is mysterious. There will be less people at night, so you can enjoy the light up slowly.

A night tour is held at night. Guided by a person living in Mt. Koya, this tour allows you to enjoy a fantastic Oku-no-in that is a bit different from the daytime.
