Since centuries and centuries ago, Japanese people have stood under waterfalls in order to get rid of worldly desires and purify their body and mind. Focus your mind and reflect on yourself while chanting Mantras and Sutras. Commune with nature and fully take in the spiritual energy filling the mountain. By the time you step out of the water, you may have discovered a "brand new you." We'll meet at the outside of Takaosanguchi Station on the Keio Line, then head along a mountain trail for about 20 min to Biwa Waterfall where many people visit to practice asceticism. After arriving at the waterfall, let's try out reading a "Buddhist Sutra" at a temple hall nearby. You'll then change into "white clothes" and clean up around the waterfall to show your respect to nature. After that, I'll sprinkle your body with salt and water for purification, and now you are ready to go beneath the waterfall! *After this experience, there is a nice Onsen (hot springs) facility, very near to this place (tattoo are not allowed). *To take part in this activity, you must be physically fit enough to withstand the falling cold water. Please refrain from participating if you have known health issues, or feel unwell on the day of the activity. *Going under the waterfall with an empty or full stomach should be avoided.

Since I became a priest, I've been devoting myself to bringing peace to the world through praying. I want to make Buddhism more accessible so that people can learn its teachings and practices more casually. To achieve that, I have regularly hold lectures, various experience sessions, including this meditate under waterfall, and training camps to help children develop. Through this experience, I hope to provide you with an introduction to the fascinating world of Buddhism.
