Henjoson-in is a temple located beside Reihokan Hall and just in front of the lotus pond of the Garan. The temple’s 25 guest rooms provide customers with a TV, coffee and yukata. Hot spring baths are also on offer, including a herb bath.
The dinner, served by local monks, is called ‘Shojin Ryori’ (vegan cuisine). Guests can experience shakyo (copying sutra by hand) and ajikan (a meditation method of Shingon esoteric Buddhism) and can also participate in the morning service to listen to the sermon of the head priest.
