this is like one stone two birds, sightseeing + experience. you come to Fushimi Inari station by Keihan-line or Inari station by JR-line. then enjoy hiking in the mountain about 60 minutes to the meditation place . I explain about meditation for 10 minutes, then chanting the mantra of Inari shrine. it takes 20 minutes . counting meditation 10 minutes breathing meditation 10 minutes photo shooting after meditation.
I've already been guiding meditation for more than 3,000 guests for 4 years 2015~2018 in Osaka. (I was also airbnb home host of TempleStay) I've been a Buddhist monk since 2002 and used to work in a big temple in Osaka more than decade. but now a freelance monk for 5 years and still belong to the independent Buddhist sect called Washu. Meditation is one of the best way to get better life, both healthy body & healthy mind. It would be first time for many guests to meditate and most of them are very very happy with good feelings. Let's enjoy meditation together !
we get the place a bit deep in the mountain where many tourists won't come. but the way first 30 minutes is famous and popular for sightseeing. many tourists take photos for 1,000 red gates on the path , but actually there is 10,000 red gates in whole mountain. usually only a few each shrine has. which is to purify yourself before prayer. so you gonna purify very well. lucky you !!
