Nichi-nichi Sanpai

Nichi-nichi sanpai is the standard format for visiting Saihoji.
After copying a sutra in the main hall, you are free to walk around the garden.
Quiet the mind by copying a sutra and discover yourself in the Garden of Origins and Journeys. On each visit to Saihoji, we hope that you will experience the flow of time unique to that day.

In order to maintain the tranquility of the temple grounds, we accept only those who make a reservation by the day before you visit.
 
Important Notice: Winter Season Visit in Saihoji
Due to maintenance of the temple grounds, Nichi-nichi sanpai which is our basic visiting program, will not be available during the winter season (around January 9 - February 29, 2024).
We are planning to offer some special programs in Ori-ori sanpai for visitors to enjoy Saihoji during the winter season.
