Experience the lifestyle of the “bozu,” or Buddhist monk, at Saikoku-ji Temple, the head temple of the Daigo sect of Shingon Buddhism. The time spent facing one’s self by instruction of the monks is the beginning of a journey to reexamine one’s life.
Premium experience limited to one group per session. Get special instruction from Aso, the assistant head monk of the Saikoku-ji Temple, the head temple of the Daigo sect of Shingon Buddhism. Leave the bustle of the city behind and unite body and mind through learning, sutra copying, meditation, and service. Time moves slowly in Setouchi, giving you ample opportunity to come face to face with who you are. There is a one-night, two-day “body and soul approach” program that includes reserved accommodation, a lesson in making Buddhist shojin vegetarian cuisine, and a sake experience. Release yourself from daily worries and stresses, and come find the next step forward in your life.
