Here's a little introduction about myself. I was born to a German father and a Japanese mother. My father taught me the ways of Zen since I was a child. After attending university, I trained for six years in a Japanese Zen monastery and became the first "foreign" Zen priest in Japan. I am attracted to the universality of Zen and I am looking forward to showing you the beauty and intrigue of Zen buddhism at my temple in Odawara and in Tokyo.

Where you'll be

We will meet up at the west exit of Odawara station at the front of the bronze statue of the Shogun Hojo. From there we will walk to Odawara castle and afterwards we will visit Zen temple Saijoji by car. At the end of our trip we will visit my own Zen temple which is five minutes away by walk from Odawara station. After the experience you will be able to get back to the station around 14:05 pm.
