The only way to visit the Saihoji temple in Kyoto is by sending a handwritten request to the monks who live there.
Let the gates of this revered site be opened just for you, and step into a hushed sanctuary that is cloistered from the secular world.
Follow the lead of the monks, who will first invite you to participate in one of their routines, before they grant you entrance to the pristine moss garden.
Take your time to immerse in the tranquility of the quiet green space. Enjoy an exclusive moment only a select few in the world have access to.
