For Newcomers

The word Shukubo refers to lodging facilities at temples and shrines. In the past, only priests and pilgrims were allowed to stay. In recent years, however, more and more Shukubo have been accepting tourists. Shukubo, which provide an experience different from daily life, are attractive locations for tourists. WAQOO Shitaderamachi carries on the spirit and role played by Shukubo by providing training workshops such as “Shakyo (sutra transcription)” and “Zazen (sitting meditation)” as well as Japanese cultural activities such as “Sado (tea ceremony)” and “O-ko (incense).”
