Private Viewing of an Exclusive temple & Meet with a Buddhism Monk
What you can enjoy in this program
WAKJAPAN’s continuing close relationship with temples makes it possible for WAKJAPAN visitors to enter temples not normally open to the public. Away from a huge traffic of tourists, you can meet with one of the monks who can tell you about the temple over a bowl of Matcha tea and traditional sweets in a tranquil atmosphere. You can ask about the temple you visit, the religion (Buddhism) in general, etc. You can even ask about a typical day of a Monk.This course is for those who want to learn more than guidebook information. The temple visits normally takes 1 to 1.5 hours.
Please note that we may use a well-known temple taking sightseers, but we make sure that you will be treated special by taking you to a special part at the temple closed to the public or outside open hours, then offering you a chance to meet with a monk privately.
- Your attendant comes to your hotel lobby and depart together by taxi to the temple.
The attendant introduces many things, basic information about Temples, Kyoto and Japan.
