“ Fantastic Guide with Exceptional Knowledge and Kindness ”

Masaki was really helpful in every way. He joined us for a great day in Mt Koya and showed us all the special places it had to offer. His knowledge of all things spiritual with regard to Buddhism and Shintoism was very impressive. He was able to give us such detail whenever we asked about specific things we saw. This was no easy task as he did this amongst century old structures with no writing or vague signage. His depth of historical knowledge was truly served well at Mt Koya for there is just so much around you there that one can only appreciate when you understand it's significance. Beyond all this Masaki was able to get us to so many events in such short periods of time that we ended up with a far more rewarding day than had we we tried to organize things ourselves. He even stayed with us until the end and joined us in a meditation ceremony that our temple stay had. It was great to have the benefit of his reflections on the activity and his willingness to stay longer for this just showed how dedicated he is in making sure you have a fantastic experience with him. Thanks again Masaki for all your help before and during our trip :-) Everett & Yana


Hello Everett, Yes, it was a great day indeed. Mt. Koya is one of my favorite places I would like to guide. This is because I'm interested in seated meditation. I've practiced chi exercise for 20 years. The breathing method of zen meditation and ajikan meditation in Mt, Koya is almost the same as I've done for all these years. Everett, now you know how to practice ajikan meditation. From now on succession is important than anything else. I know you are very busy but practice meditation every day and corporate the custom into your daily life. I'm sure you will be happy mentally and physically through it. Hope for your great success. Masaki
