Zazen Meditation Experience 坐禅体験

Engage in guided medidation with Zen Buddhist monks

Zazen is a type of meditation practiced by Zen Buddhists. Visitors can try zazen at a handful of temples around Ishikawa.

Zazen experiences in Ishikawa range from simply sitting and looking inward to joining the trainee monks in their actual meditation room. Some temples offer overnight stays called shukubo, which pair meditation with a taste of daily temple life and traditional Buddhist vegetarian meals.
