You don’t need any application for a one-day tour. However, if you want to participate the IZW (International Zen Workshop), you must apply for the program of one overnight stay or the program for beginners.
Don’t worry. We have the program for beginners.
It doesn’t matter, as long as you have an accepting attitude.
No. We don’t accept a partial participation at all.
Children are welcome to participate in the Sanro program. However, it isn’t possible for children to participate in the IZW program.
Don’t worry. English-speaking priests will instruct you on how to do zazen.
Yes, you can if you are going to participate in the Sanro program. However, it is not basically allowed to use it in other programs.
It’s best to wear clean, comfortable, simple clothing. Avoid garments which are dirty or which are luxurious or expensive.
No. You can visit here any day of the year except January 1st. However, those who want to stay here overnight or want to experience zazen must make a reservation. See the Practice.
Yes. However, only visit as far as the Sammon area.
Yes, we do.

If you want to just have a quick look, it takes about one hour. Keep in mind though that Eiheiji, built on the slope of the mountain, has a lot of stairs, so it is good to plan for time to rest as well.
No. However, all the buildings are connected with the corridors, so you are safe from the rain at Eiheiji.
If you stay overnight here, you can do so. However, when you come here for a daytrip only, it is not possible.
