4.8/5 BEST REVIEW

by hugobl Spain / 02 Oct 2019

I spent three nights and loved it. Everyone was very friendly, especially Mr. Nozawa, the chief monk, who even teached me some meditation. I was on my own for most of the time, though. The early morning rituals and ceremonies are great (5AM), very visual and rythmic. Food was great, although I went for the vegetarian option. Walking around the temple area in the evening, with all the lamps, is amazing. I think I paid around 2.200Y for my taxi from Oji station (the first driver didn't know where it was). On my way back I took a bus.

The shukubo (temple lodging) is located in the Quasi-National Park and guests can look forward to admiring seasonal landscapes as well as experiencing Buddhist training including shakyo (transcribing sutra).
