Heart of Tokyo,Yokohama & Kamakura 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 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.

April 2021


You can practice as a community from your home! Considering Covid-19 situation, from March 2020, we are offering our practice online via Zoom, instead of meeting at the Osaragi Jiro Memorial Museum in person. This month, we welcome Sr. Kinh Nghiem from Deer Park Monastery in California again♪ If you have a question for the sister, you can send it to our email.

Everyday we are engaged in a miracle which we don't even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child - our own two eyes. All is a miracle.  Thich Nhat Hanh
