[An Additional Note]

Thankfully, I've been appointed as the chief priest at Kouunji-Temple, which is located just 15 minutes from Nanzenji-Temple. There is a large Main Hall(meditation hall), built 340 years ago, which is used for services and as a Zazen Hall. At former temple we were only able to sit 20 or so students. Now, we can sit more than 50 people. Please come and see us whenever you visit Kyoto.
