Private meditation at Korin-in Temple

Private meditation at Korin-in Temple

Experience Zen in an private meeting with the temple's head priest to capture a moment of reflection on your Japan journey

Korin-in Temple belongs to the Rinzai sect of Zen Buddhism, and is located at the foot of the beautiful Higashiyama Mountains in the east of Kyoto City. We are delighted to be able to arrange private experiences here in cooperation with the temple's head priest. If you'd like to learn more about Buddhism and its role in everyday Japanese life, a lesson in Zazen meditation guided by the head priest is a fantastic experience. The chief priest will instruct you in how to sit, breath and focus before initiating a short session of meditation. You can also take part in a tea ceremony here served by a Kyoto geisha.
