Shakyo is the traditional practice of transcribing sutras. By concentrating on the letters of sutras, you can relax your mind as you work. Take your writing brush home as a souvenir, too. What is Tera Cafe? We aim at making Buddhism more familiar to everyone. To fulfill that aim, we bring the temple to the city, and create a gentle cafe refuge for people living in modern society. If you cannot find anyone to talk about your troubles, or if it is a bit difficult for you to come to a temple for you do not know much about Buddhist temples, or have never been to one before, then we will go and meet you! That is our concept.

Cancellation Policy

  • We do not charge a cancellation fee, but please process your cancellation as soon as possible, when needed.
