Hi! I'm Chisato Danura.

I will guide you!

Description of this tour

Shinshoji Temple Zen Museum and Gardens is a place for you to experience the spirit of Zen.
An art pavilion, KOHTEI is a must-see. Inside KOHTEI, the ship-shaped building is a unique installation. It is one way of interpriting the teaching of Zen. Zen monks' "fabulous" dish is provided. Following their manners, you can also feel the world of Zen training! Visitors can stroll in the extensive gardens. Touch and feel the world of Zen through all five senses!

I have run a small English conversation school at home for more than ten years. It is my pleasure to encourage and see the students' gradual improving processes through this work.
At the same time, I would say it is also my delight to introduce Japanese things to international visitors to Japan.
Japan will need to have wider perspective in order to get along with this world. I believe that the guiding job is one of the first steps to grassroots exchanges with other countries.
My favorite motto is " Today is also one precious day in my whole life." I would like to value and remember this phrase every day. Thank you very much.
