I' m a British woman who has lived here in Takachiho, Japan for 30 years. I am a Pure Land Buddhist priest and I am married to the 17th generation head priest of Shonenji Temple. We run our busy temple, teach in the community and have three grownup children and two grandchildren.

We love hosting, talking, cooking, eating, drinking and socialising. We are not vegetarian and we enjoy drinking alcohol.

We have hosted many guests from all over the world over the years but 2015 marks our debut with Airbnb.

We are a Pure Land Buddhist temple so we do not offer zazen but we do encourage our guests to take part in our chanting services.

During your stay

We like to show our guests around the temple and to introduce them to our work here. We are often available to pick up guests from the bus centre and to drive them back again.
We can be sociable and love to share a few drinks and chat. But, we are also just fine leaving you to truly relax and cosy up in the beautiful Lodge with its artworks and books and log stove.
