Heart of Tokyo Sangha


We are a community of friends in the fifth year of practicing mindfulness in the tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh and Plum Village, in the heart of Tokyo, and in Kanagawa.





We welcome everyone to join our mindfulness practice of total relaxation, sitting, walking, singing,.. and monthly recitation of the Five Mindfulness Trainings. The practices are simple, easy, yet deep and lovely.

It’s very important that we re-learn the art of resting and relaxing. Not only does it help prevent the onset of many illnesses that develop through chronic tension and worrying; it allows us to clear our minds, focus, and find creative solutions to problems. We will be more successful in all our endeavors if we can let go of the habit of running all the time, and take little pauses to relax and re-center ourselves. And we’ll also have a lot more joy in living.
