Shinshoji Zen Museum and Gardens

New style of Zen experiences

Visitors can experience Zen meditation and copying sutras. At the training hall of Rinzai sect Buddhism, visitors can try Zen style udon noodle, which is a monk meal. These are unique experiences.

In October, 2020, the service of an audio guide in three languages; Japanese, English and Chinese started so that everybody can learn Zen in handy ways. The longest narration is ten minutes, so please try to listen.

After you spend a peaceful day surrounded by beautiful nature and learn about Zen, your fatigue of everyday life is gone.
