Shogenji is a temple of the Myoshinji branch of the Japanese Rinzai School of Zen Buddhism.
Surrounded by mountains and forests, Shogenji is a beautiful and scenic place to visit. You can go by car, but the walk up the mountain road, climbing the temple stairs, and immersing yourself in the quiet mountain atmosphere will bring your tired mind a sense of tranquility and take you away from all your worldly troubles.
Are you seeking solace? Do you wish to take some time for introspection? Then visit the Shinshoboko, a bell rung in the morning/evening bell to mark the time, and also help people awaken.
