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 Kanagawa.





We welcome everyone to join our mindfulness practice of total relaxation, sitting, walking, singing,..etc and monthly recitation of the Five Mindfulness Trainings in the tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh and Plum Village. The practices are simple, easy, yet deep and lovely.
