Korin-in Temple

Shunchan

Dec 8, 2016

Practising zazen or ‘seated meditation’ is a great way of recharging your mind, body and soul. I like to do it at Korin-in Temple, which is just a five-minute walk from Hiroo station.

I try my best to attend the daily meditation sessions: 7am on weekdays and 5pm on Sundays. Each session is divided into two 25-minute sets, with a five-minute break in-between. It really helps me start my day well.

If you are new to zazen, don’t worry. Korin-in Temple makes is really easy for those interested to attend. All you need to do is walk in and join! There are instructions available in Japanese and English at the temple.

There is no dress code but I recommend you wear something loose and comfortable, so you’ll feel relaxed! Come and practice zazen and experience a morning in Japan with the locals!
