Other Food and Drink
Drinks can be purchased at the vending machine located inside Kencho-ji Temple. Please note, no food is sold at the temple. Further, there are no convenience stores or other shops selling food nearby.
At the venue, NEVER place drinks or food directly on the floors and tatami mats, as doing so may stain them. We ask for your cooperation in keeping this sacred Zen temple clean for everybody.
