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.

You can practice as a community from the comfort of your home! In consderation of the corrent situation of Covid-19, we are offering online mindfulness practice via Zoom, instead of meeting at the Osaragi Jiro Memorial Museum in person. We are also fortunate to host monthly online talk and total relaxation session of  Sr. Kinh Nghiem, who is a senior dharma teacher of  Deer Park Monastery in California. If you would like to ask the sister a question, you are welcome to send it to our email.
