LocalZen   Chiba

Come and experience Japanese ZEN (the Japanese traditional mentality that all be integrated into the universe) culrure! We will practice Zen mediation and Japanese calligraphy at Naritasan Shinsho-ji Temple(成田山新勝寺). Also you can try Traditional Japanese Buddhist Cuisine(Shojin Ryori). The purpose of this tour is to integrate Zen into the everyday lives of people. Let's come and join us! 🙂
Have you ever felt:
◎Pictures of beautifully presented cuisine, perfectly sculptured garden, sacred shrine emitting a divine radiance, taken during your visit in Japan could be even further enriched with knowledge of their story that lay in the background?
◎Baffled about why things are done or presented in a certain way at a certain time but do not possess the articulacy in the local language to express it?
◎You’ve always wanted to experience first-hand the true Japanese culture as it has by the locals but have never gotten the chance? 
Join us! At Samurai Meetups and satisfy your desire and thirst for knowledge quenched!
