Hokoku-ji Highly Recommended Highly Recommended Highly Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

Bibendum
The tranquility of the Zen temple of Hokoku-ji is enhanced by its isolated location, which spares it from the hordes of tourists. A teahouse as tiny as a dollhouse provides the ideal spot from which to look at the Buddha sculptures as well as the forest of 2 000 bamboos that lends this 14C sanctuary its particular charm. Here spiritual novices can be initiated into the discipline of zazen.
