My main interest is sutras and Buddhist music. Actually, it’s more of a life calling really. I have the strong feeling that working for the benefit of humanity is my mission, and for this I feel truly blessed. As I have dedicated my life to Buddhist sutras, I’ve become very good at reciting them, and I enjoy sharing my knowledge and passion with others. I believe that sutras are like a handbook to life. They are truly like a comprehensive map leading to good fortune. I would love for people to enjoy and listen to them wherever, whenever, and with whomever. To this end, I have composed and performed my own Buddhist music, and above all I endeavour to express sutras in a way more attuned to modern ears.

Full profile


Located close to the station in Sugamo, Tokyo, this authentic Buddhist temple experience specializes in sutras like no other. Learn about time-cherished, truth-revealing teachings passed down from the Heian period (1200 AD) by notable Japanese Buddhist priest, Grandmaster Kukai. In the process of listening to Buddhist sutras, you will also unlock the secrets to correct breathing and posture methods. Participants can relax while purifying their mind and spirit, in order to achieve a more enlightened state through meditation. What better way to recharge the soul than this? This fascinating eye-opener lasts for about one hour in general but can go as long as two hours depending on the Q&A and get-together afterwards.
