On October 2, 2022, a training session was held at Hokyoji Temple in Ono City.
Hokyoji Temple is famous as the second Soto Dojo(Training place) in Japan after Eiheiji Temple.
A monk explained the inside of the temple building to us, and at the end of the training, we all learned how to do zazen (Zen meditation) together.
In the midst of a mountain of cedar trees, we came into contact with the spirit of Zen and became one with nature.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, it had been a long time since we had had a training session at an actual tourist site, but the day was truly beautiful and sunny in the autumn.
