Travel Guide - Manpuku-ji Temple

InformationInformation

Manpuku-ji Temple was established as a Zen temple in 1661 by the Chinese priest Ingen Ryuki. It is a rare example of a Zen temple in Japan which was built in the pure Chinese style of the Ming dynasty. Manpuku-ji Temple is the head temple of the Obaku school of Zen Buddhism, but also incorporates a wide range of Esoteric Buddhist practices. Most of the buildings in the temple still keep their original form. Visitors can try Zazen (seated meditation), Shakyo (Sutra copying), and Chinese-style Shojin-ryori (Buddhist cuisine) called Fucha-ryori.
