Syougonji temple

East Area

Shogonji Temple is a Zen temple with a long history located approximately six minute walk from the Shikanoshima Island ferry landing. It is famed as a temple for matchmaking, and the view looking down on Hakata bay is amazing. On days where there are no other special Temple events, there are several activities available here which are particularly worthwhile for foreign visitors, such as a Zen meditation workshop, a matcha green tea workshop, and a sutra transcription workshop (fee required).

※ Please inquire about the Zen meditation workshop, matcha workshop, and sutra transcription workshop at the temple on the day.
