There is a meditation hall and a place for sutra copying (Hibutsu-dō) on the grounds. With a simple registration a basic experience of zazen or sutra copying is possible for anyone.
You can enjoy matcha (green tea) in a teahouse built in the style of the Omotesenke tea school. This teahouse can also be used for tea ceremony gatherings and so on.
You can eat udon in the same way as the unsui (training monks) do at a training hall of the Rinzai sect.
Take a break from viewing the temple grounds and take your time looking at the peaceful garden while enjoying green tea.
The bathhouse is one of the seven regular buildings of a traditional Zen temple. Take a bath to rejuvenate yourself after viewing the temple grounds.
