Meditating in Joshokoji Zen Temple
One of the places that many of my guests get impressed by is the Joshokoji temple, which is famous for its beautiful autumn leaves and spring cherry blossom. The temple was built around the 13th century when emperor Kogon retired from his status and moved to Keihoku as a monk for his rest of life. You will meet his statue at a prayer hall that is full of sacred atmosphere. I personally love adding this as an option to my day trips as it not only a cultural experience, but a spiritual one as well.
