Buddhist Temple Experience

Immerse yourself in Japan’s Buddhist traditions during a visit to a temple in Yokohama.

Founded in 1936 as part of the modern Japanese lay Buddhist movement, Kodosan emphasizes the practice of Buddhism in daily life, with its teachings partly derived from Tendai Buddhism.

During this interactive tour, participants will take part in an authentic Japanese tea ceremony, try their hand at calligraphy and enjoy a moment of calm while learning about Buddhist meditation.

The temple tour concludes with a visit to Kodosan’s Daikokuten pagoda and the chance to purchase good luck amulets.

After an engaging cultural morning, participants will enjoy an organic lunch at Iconic Stage in Yokohama.
