The Zen lunch is surpervised by Chef Nobuaki Fushiki, specializing in fermentation cuisine.
Zenbo cuisine is an original culinary art of Zenbo Seinei using no sugar, oil, dairy products, flour, or animal products. Seasonings are fermented for one to three years in a unique brewing process. Miso, soy sauce, mirin, and other seasonings are obtained directly from the brewery to ensure a continuous fermentation process.
Zen calligraphy offers a sense of peace through the act of writing, character by character with every brushstroke. This session uses the copybook of the famed calligrapher, Shisyu.
Through Zen tea, you can discover the heart of “omotenashi”, Japan’s unique spirit of hospitality.
Through Zen aromatherapy, you can sharpen your senses and “listen” to the scent, experiencing a moment of deep inner peace.
For those who prefer to enjoy a sunset and starry skies, try an evening program of 3.5 hours from 16:30 to 20:00.
A day plan with a moving meditation “Surya Namaskar（Sun Salutations)” and Vinyasa Yoga which connects awareness with movement and breathing is also offered on some days.
