2021 Spring Virtual Tour to KOYASAN and Meditation Experience

The recommended season to visit Koyasan is winter with fewer tourists

We held an online event, “virtual tour to Koyasan and Meditation Experience” for exchange students in the spring semester 2021.

A monk of Koyasan, Jijun INABA, introduced Koyasan Shingon Sect Main Temple Kongobu-ji in Wakayama prefecture with fascinating four-seasons’ pictures, and told exchange students a way of meditation of Shingon Sect.

Meditation Experience

On the day, in addition to exchange students from all over the world, such as Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Lithuania, etc., those live in Japan joined.

At the end of the event, everyone experienced twenty-minute meditation, and we could see they calmly self meditated and unified their minds from the screen.

A picture of participants

This event was meaningful for those who could not come to Japan and those who could not freely enjoy their lives in Japan under the state of emergency due to the COVID-19 to feel Japanese culture and spend calm time, being away from the daily lives.
