Sutras in Machiya Stay

In “HARUYA Umekouji” where 4 different tastes of 100 years Machiya architecture are next to each other, we hold an opportunity to do Sutras of Buddhism at the residence time after having taken enough time for sightseeing. One letter of a sutra is said to have the same meaning as carving a Buddha, not writing a letter. Later sutras will be dedicated to the five-storied pagoda of Kyoto symbols · Toji, which will be visible from the Shinkansen, by the HARUYA staff at a later date.


If we are booking a private room, we can have sutras time in the room. If we are reserving a shared room (dormitory), we can use lounge “The Lattice” for the sutras. As sutras at a temple, clean the room by the incense, the desk named “Nigatsudou” from the temple of Todaiji Temple in Nara, the head of all provincial temples. the official sutras of the world heritage · Toji will let us take a finest memorable moment in the trip.
