Rokuo-in is located near Togetsu-kyo Bridge in Arashiyama, which is a famous sightseeing spot in Kyoto. Our temple enjoys a fine reputation for its autumn foliage, and also offers accommodation, exclusively for women.
Open the paper sliding screens of the reception hall to views of our beautiful, Arashiyama-inspired traditional dry landscape garden. We are sure you will enjoy a peaceful, quiet night, staying in our temple. Our curfew is at 7:30 p.m.
The next morning, guests participate in zazen meditation in the reliquary hall from 6:50 a.m. Closing your eyes, listen only to the sound of your own breath, and calm your mind. After a sermon from the head priest, a breakfast of Buddhist vegetarian dishes, or “shojin ryori,” is served.
Japan’s “shojin ryori” is made using only vegetables, beans, and grains. Because the taking of life is forbidden in Buddhism, this cuisine does not include meat or fish dishes. Check-out is at 10 a.m.
We hope that you will continue to enjoy sightseeing around Kyoto after purifying both your body and mind. We expect that the scenery will appear a little different after your stay with us.
