transcribe Buddhist scripture

Copying sutras is a Zen practice in which Buddhist sutras are copied and virtue is accumulated. By thinking of each letter as a Buddha and writing it with respect, you will feel calm and calm. The sutras of Koshinji are written by tracing from above with a brush. Even beginners and foreigners are okay. We also have sutra-copying paper for children.

Stone mill ground tea experience

It is an experience of grinding tea leaves with a stone mill and making matcha using a chasen. Rinzai sect and tea have a long-standing connection. During the Kamakura period, the founder of the Rinzai sect, Eisai Zenshi, brought back tea seeds from China and encouraged cultivation in Japan, and tea was popularized in Japan. The experience of grinding and drinking tea leaves with a stone mill may be similar to the way you enjoy tea at that time. The scent of freshly ground tea is exceptional.

Walking and meditation (mindfulness) experience

Koshinji has a very quiet environment suitable for meditation, such as the dry landscape garden and the woods around Kaisando. Take a walk, look out over the garden, and spend some time relaxing.

    Guest user充実した時間を過ごせました。

    とても楽しく心穏やかに過ごせました!
    自分たちで挽いたお茶はとても甘味が強く、他のお茶と飲み比べをさせていただいてもすごく美味しかったです。写経は初体験で、全て書き終わるのに1時間ほどかかりましたが、書き終わった後の達成感と、書いてる間に願い事を考えるのも楽しかったです。
    プランの内容もさることながら、お寺も綺麗で快適で過ごしやすく、お寺の方も優しく話しやすい人ばかりだったので、また利用したいと思える所でした!神石高原の商品券おすすめしていただき、利用させていただいたので、同じ値段でもプラスでお土産を買う事も出来、ありがたかったです。
