  • NET one time can experience Zazen at 1,000 yen, or telephone reservation is required. Is a one-hour, 15-minute meditation twice, including break and description. Meaning of sitting, breathing, etiquette, meditation, taught. I had lightly would be pretty profound experience. Walk from the parking lots in forest Temple has two long parking lot, tofukuji is right.

  • Zazen experience many dates are limited, but here on weekdays, on weekends regardless carries is like. Experience Zazen 1000 yen. That can be booked at ⭕ ️. I had experience at the end of 11 months were beautiful leaves, however, it was cold. Safely worried about style motioned "Gassho-zukuri" speaking of Zazen is stick descended the image, if only because it is. Contracts I got hit twice, but I feel very good. Was a valuable one-hour, but unfortunately is one point. 8:30-the late half of the entire people participated in the annual... For this reason, also could be the same description. And did you hear voices described when you meditate. Should accept people who arrived late, I came late to the problem it is Zazen experience and does not think. Written on the home page, participants should arrive before 15 minutes.

  • If you like, can make of the Tofuku-ji first experiences in the lower Temple. Even beginners are taught in Zazen and Buddhist sutras. The temple itself, although quite old, is quite unremarkable, the small garden around is very pleasing.

Where to stay in Kyoto

Kyoto spoils visitors for choice when it comes to good accommodations, offering everything from traditional ryokans to luxury Western-style hotels. In a city used to receiving foreign travelers, you'll find that most establishments know exactly what to offer tourists and how to help newcomers to the area. To avoid paying premium prices during the cherry blossom season, consider staying in Osaka, located just a 30-minute train ride away. If you must stay in Kyoto itself, keep in mind that centrally located hotels charge more than those in the outer neighborhoods.
