Even as much of its structure and gardens are protected as cultural properties of Japan and Ishikawa Prefecture, Daijoji Temple still functions year round as a training hall for twenty monks of the Soto School of Buddhism. Practice zazen in their training hall as they do: assume the correct posture, breathe naturally, clear the mind and think of only the present moment, meditating neither on any particular object nor on nothingness.
Reservations required in advance. Instruction is in Japanese. Telephone calls are only available in Japanese. For English or Chinese inquiries and reservations, please fax or email.
