Shakyo Sutra Copying Experience at Gionji Temple in Tokyo

Shakyo Sutra Copying Experience at Gionji Temple in Tokyo

star-5
Experience shakyo, a practice of hand-copying Buddhist sutras, and find peace of mind at a quiet temple surrounded by lush green in Chofu City, Tokyo. Shakyo has long been part of religious training for Buddhist monks, but it has recently become a popular means of meditation. In this 1.5-hour session, you can also try out simple sutra recitation, as well as listen to the head priest’s preach in addition to the shakyo experience. If you are looking to have a deeper cultural experience in Tokyo than just visiting popular tourist attractions, this one is for you. Despite being only half an hour away from bustling Shinjuku, this temple is surrounded by an abundance of greenery. It was built in the early 8th century to enshrine Jinja-Daioh, a god of water who is said to have helped bring together the founder's parents. Thanks to its romantic heritage, today the temple is known as a “matchmaking temple” where people's love-related wishes are granted.
