Travel through the old Shugendo training grounds before settling in to a lunch of soba noodles, typically featuring locally sourced buckwheat. After lunch, join monks from the temple for a Zen meditation session. You’ll learn to let go of worldly worries under the guidance the monks, and will also have the opportunity to join in on a sutra copying session. It’s believed that copying Buddhist scriptures and teachings can lead to another form of spiritual mindfulness.
The tour is available from late April to November.
