體驗簡介

Zazen begins very early in the morning.
When Zen meditation begins, we put our palms together and chant a mantra.
At that time there is a Buddhist sutra so listen in your peaceful mind.

Then, a bell is going to be ringed by a Zen monk, we will meditate for 30 minutes after the sound.

Take a five minute break and meditate again for 30 minutes.

During meditation, the real Zen monks will be wandering around and tapping your shoulders with a stick if you ask in a certain way.This is for concentrating on the spirit, but it is not mandatory because it is a self-declaration system.

Sitting cross-legged on a seat is a basic posture like in a picture of this listing, but this might lead to numbness of legs for foreigners.. But don't worry because It happens to me as well:) If you can not sit on the seat like that, it is no problem to sit as you feel comfortable.

I can write a point on how to do as below.
◎Keep breathing quietly and should not be roughened. Try not to think about anything. Clearing your mind is the goal.

Zen meditation in a spirited space with beautiful air will give us a fresh feeling .
Other things to note
◎Since it starts in the early morning, please be careful not to be late.

◎The exact meeting point on that day will be informed you of after reservation by e-mail from Airbnb.

◎We shouldn't chat while meditating.

◎The costume is not restricted. It is fine to wear casual wear.

I am a local born in Kyoto and living in Kyoto more than 30 years and am familiar to Zazen( Meditation) here.
In Kyoto, there are several temples where Zen meditation is possible, but they are too touristic because all participants are foreign tourists. I will take you to a local Zazen place which is not regularly held. You can experience a true zen meditation with local people living in Kyoto, not just as foreigners or tourists.

體驗地點

The meditation I take you to is not like what is generally published in a magazine or guidebook, it is where local residents participate. Therefore, there is only an announcement in a paper on when the next Zazen is actually going to be held. It means that this is totally different from a touristic Zazen. It is a holy silent space for locals.

You can feel the magnificence of Japanese Zen Buddhism in a very quiet and beautifully spacious place.

I had been looking for a meditation experience with monks. Glad to gave joined this experience with Masahiro. He explained everything to me in english before we joined the meditation since monks’ instructions will be in Japanese. I got to know what to expect and what will happen before the meditation. He gave tips on how to sit for a beginner like me. Since it was a cold autumn morning, he also gave me a hand warmer that really helped. He gave me tips what places to visit in Kyoto. Definitely, well worth waking up early. Thanks so much Masahiro!

This was a great experience! Definitely not something that my wife and I would have done by ourselves. Masahiro was a very kind soul who grew up as a Buddhist so the background and direction he gave before entering the temple was fantastic! Afterwards he also gave us some recommendations of things to do that were less touristy if your up for an adventure. 100% recommend this and the other cool experiences it looks like he has. Thanks Masahiro!!

Worth waking up early! Masahiro met us promptly at 6am and took us to a wonderful temple. I was nervous an hour of meditation would be too long or I would be uncomfortable, but that was not an issue. He explained what the monks would say and told us about their mantra before we entered the temple so we would understand what was happening. After he spend some time with us and gave us a few places to visit that are off the beaten path and not filled with tourist. This was a wonderful way to start our day. If you think this is something you are interested in DO IT! Like I said .. worth waking up early!

I had wonderful experience during this meditation session . Masahiro is very knowledgeable and he shared much information and explained many things about zazen, its principles, techniques, philosophy . He was also very open and enthusiastic and shared his personal experience eagerly. Besides, the organisation was very good. So, I really enjoyed it.

This was an amazing experience! Masahiro made us feel at ease by explaining all we needed to know beforehand, and even gave us a hand warmer as it's pretty chilly early in the morning. My boyfriend and I have very little experience meditating and were worried about 2 X 30 minute sessions in a row being too much, but it was absolutely fine. The sound of the monks & locals chanting was so incredibly cool it felt very surreal. We were the only tourists there, which made it feel even more special. Masahiro was a knowledgeable and lovely host and we highly recommend this experience.
