Welcome to Zenpoji Temple! Upon meeting a Buddhist monk and your interpreter at the main gate of Zenpoji Temple, you will begin your orientation into the world of Zen Buddhism with an introduction to meditation. Next you will be able to put this newly learned technique into practice with a zazen meditation experience, which is performed inside a hall normally off limits to anyone besides the temple monks. After learning the ins and outs of zazen meditation, your training will continue with participating in an authentic Buddhist lunch ceremony. As the day proceeds, you will then move to a worship hall to undergo a Zen prayer ritual accompanied by a monk as your spiritual guide. Finally, your visit to Zenpoji Temple will conclude with a walk around the temple grounds, visiting some hidden areas of the complex that are only accessible when accompanied by a temple monk. When the tour is concluded, your interpreter would be happy to call you a taxi to bring you to your next location. Public buses to Tsuroka Station are also available at the Zenpotera Bus Stop located within walking distance (5 minutes) of the main gate.
Welcomed into Daishinbo Pilgrim Lodge, your Experience begins here, meeting your Yamabushi guide and interpreter. In the tradition of so many pilgrims before you, you will prepare yourself by donning a white robe, called “gyohi”, and creating a sacred boundary around yourself with your “shime”, an ornate paper necklace. Your pilgrimage starts when you leave the lodge and proceed to the mountain’s official entrance gate, Zuishinmon. Your trek will pass through the gate, and your Yamabushi leader will guide you through the sacred and beautiful sites of Mount Haguro, touching on their spiritual importance as well as pausing for moments of reflection. After reaching the summit you will enter the very sanctuary of the Sanjingosaiden Shrine and participate in a ritual blessing inside. Having completed the pilgrimage from the Shukubo lodge, Daishinbo will present you with an “Ofuda” – the sacred talisman or charm. This is a symbol of your rebirth, a reminder, and a spiritual protection for your daily life. This kind of pilgrimage is a popular way for lay-people to engage in Yamabushi practices and reconnect with nature in the sacred mountains of the Dewa Sanzan. In our Experience, we facilitate your participation in this time-honoure
