As the spotlessly cleaned main hall welcomes the golden rays of the morning sun, the chirping of birds announces the beginning of a new day.
With a Morning Visit session, you can start off your day in this dignified atmosphere and relax in a moment. After listening to the bell ring five times and meditating for three minutes in the main hall, clear your mind by copying a sutra and being free to walk around the garden.
(After participating in the Morning Visit, you can continue with the Nichi-nichi Sanpai program without application. Please take your time.)
Advance registration is required by the day before the visit.
