    The bath is one of the seven regular buildings (temple gate, lecture hall, Buddha hall, meditation hall, living quarters, lavatory, bath) of a traditional Buddhist temple and the place, where Battabara Bosatsu is worshipped. In Zen, the study of Buddhism lies in the daily routines and each place be used for it. Washing off the dirt both physically and spiritually plays an important role in the daily practice.

    This bath is mainly built for the practitioners of the International Zen training Hall, but it is also open for all visitors, who want to wash away the dirt of body and mind.
