What's RYOSOKU  

RYOSOKU was initiated in 2018 with the aim of improving quality of life through Zen.

RYOSOKU aims to provide the perfect meditation environment suitable to our times and to foster healthy minds that are focused on creating a better society. RYOSOKU consists of two main activities: our creative and educational programming and our renovation project.

 

Our creative programming is geared toward reimagining the future of our temple, toward envisioning new facilities and functions for meditation, accommodation, and burial.

  Partners  

Ryosoku-in, established in 1358, has partnered with architect Junya Ishigami to begin revitalizing the grounds of our temple, uniting traditional Zen teaching with the practice of wisdom and compassion necessary for today. While continuing to organize the core programming of RYOSOKU, we now also seek donations to support repairs to existing facilities and improvement of the landscape. Our members-only events serve as an opportunity to partake in advance experience of the fruits of our renovations. It is also an opportunity for us to hear directly from our members. We hope to have opportunities to share our plans for the future. Through your support, we can offer exhibitions of models and sketches for exclusive access.
