Welcome to Tetsugyuji International Zen Center. As a pure "shugyo dojo" (training center) our goal is to provide the international community with a remote location in Japan's Oita Prefecture where they can experience authentic Zen training. Unlike many other Buddhist temples, Tetsugyuji does not have "haka" (a cemetery), "danka" (formal members) or perform "o-shoshiki" (funerals). Our support and focus comes from being of service to the community at large. We hope you will join us for one of our events and that we can help foster a more peaceful, enlightened world in the process. Gasho.
