Yusanji Temple

Training experience in a sacred mountain while silent

ysnj1r.jpgysnj2.jpg
Yusanji Temple is located on one of the three famous mountains in the Enshu area and was founded by the famous priest Gyoki in 701. It is known as a temple which offers blessings for your eyes or legs, and the whole mountain is covered in sacred forest. You can see many historical buildings and cultural assets on this sacred mountain, in silence.
Also you can experience "waterfall training," in which you stand in the basin of the waterfall while chanting a sutra. In the mountains, away from the noise of daily life, you can reflect on your inner mind.
