  • The monks here don't like foreigners, it's very noisy, not by the wall-to-ceiling Windows and the neighbors are for four to 23 hours talking and laughing, the machine of the air conditioning/heating outside is raging through the rice paper walls. The futon is very thin and very hard. There is sweeping traffic along the window. The toilet is too small and is slanted so that your knees in the corner against the door locks if you sit on and your privacy at bathing (mag only after 4:30 pm) and brushing teeth is nil. Dinner is served in the room, half is ok the other half acid and cold. Because it rained we stayed far in but you can't normally sit and read, there's only one fluorescent tube in the middle of the nice looking room. Outside the temple was all close, get a good coffee in the evening could not. Best tourist zone and Japanese inferior against tourists here than elsewhere. A total & convenient.

  • Staying in a shukubu is not exactly a tourist choice. It is a monastery with its own routine, which opens its doors to guests. But the rules of daily life of the monks do not change. Meals are served within a fixed schedule, as well as have time to shut the doors at night. However, it's a great chance to get to know each other more closely a particular world, full of peace and serenity, enjoying vegetarian cuisine developed there and participating in religious ceremonies. Very enriching.
