What to Expect
A tour to deepen the senses.

The temple you will visit is called "Honkouji", located about a one-hour drive from Tokyo. Meet your tour operators at 13:00 in their office, about a 10-minute walk from Harajuku station. From there you will travel to the temple by car. Once there, a monk will serve as your guide for the day.

You will spend about 3 to 4 hours at the temple, sharing in a variety of activities you may have never experienced before, such as Japanese calligraphy and matcha making. You also will get to sit down and ask the monks any questions you may have. After the trip, you will head back to Harajuku station and return to Tokyo's city life.
