Enkō-ji Temple

1 save

Recommendation by Lemi

Meditate in a hall used by Buddhist monks and nuns since the Meiji era (1868-1912)! Enkō-ji Temple is on the outskirts of Kyoto, tucked away from the bustle of the city. Its enchanting garden blooms with cherry blossoms during Spring, then red and golden foliage during Autumn! Commune with nature and tap into its tranquility while joining in on Zazen (Zen Meditation). Sessions begin early on Sunday mornings at 6:00AM. Call at least a day ahead to reserve a spot. The monks welcome visitors at every level; you’ll be able to follow along to their instructions, whether you’re a first-timer or a long-time practitioner!
