The main monastery was build 300 years ago and Zen practice has been taken place there ever since. Great Zen masters came forth from this Zendo, and Shodo Harada
Roshi is the 36 abbot of the monastery. He is giving life to the vision of his teacher Yamada Mumon Roshi by mainly teaching foreign students as well as teaching abroad. His translater is Daichi
Zenni, who also cares for the sangha in the zendokan position.
