About your host

Myorakuji Temple is a temple of Rinzai-shyu. This temple's monk will teach you how to concentrate yourself through a meditation. Clarifying yourself is called "Satori" (spiritual awakening) and the monks train themselves to achieve this state of mind. Myorakuji Temple became important during the era of trading between Hakata (Fukuoka) and China.
