What to expect
A monk welcomes you who would like to experience the traditional Japanese experiences and gives you a guide. Please learn about the architecture and history of the temple. After the tour, you can experience a part of Buddhist practice, Shakyo and Shabutsu, at the temple established over 1400 years ago and was designated as a national treasure. In Shabutsu, your brain will be activated by carefully copying sutra one letter after another, while keeping your mind empty. You can also try Shabutsu - copying the Buddhist images by hand. Zazen is a fundamental method of training in Buddhism, in which you meditates sitting with correct posture. You can expect the relaxation effect by meditating with calm mind. Option: 1. You can enjoy "Shojin Ekogawa Hot Pot" that is a local vegetarian Buddhist cuisine using lots of local ingredients and locally-brewed sake as well. ( If you are vegetarian, other option will be available. Please let us know in advance.) If you are interested in, please select the option and get the hospitality after Zazen experience! 2. Your work will be printed on a T-shirt or a tote bag while you are doing Zazen and having vegetarian Buddhist cuisine.
