Zen Priest / Zazen Meditation Instructor
Kojun Shimoyama / 下山光順
Vice priest of Daichuji Temple.
After studying abroad in England from high school to university, he returned to Japan and trained at a Zen Buddhist ｍonastery in Shizuoka. Then he became a vice priest of Daichuji Temple. He has also been a Theravada Buddhism priest at a temple in Bangkok, Thailand.
He is also a Zazen meditation instructor from Flyingmonk, which devices to fuse long-established Zen meditation with mindfulness and promote calmness to improve mental and physical health.
Daichuji is a Zen Buddhist temple located by the foot of Mt. Fuji at Numazu city in Shizuoka, Japan. The temple was founded by Muso Soseki in 1313. However, there was a Shingon Buddhist temple before then, thus an image of the Buddhist deity Fudo Myoo is enshrined as the principle object of worship.
Daichuji maintained a relationship with the Imperial Villa in Numazu, welcoming visits by the Imperial Family. Onkoden hall was built as a resting room partly in the style of Art Nouveau in 1909. Onkoden is one of the few remaining Meiji period wooden buildings in Numazu.
Locally harvested taro potato was offered to the Imperial Family at the times of the visits. It grows as big as a head of a baby and later named after the temple, “Daichuji potato” meaning the potato from Daichuji by the Imperial Family.
Flying Monk devises to fuse long-established Zen meditation with mindfulness and promote calmness to improve mental and physical health. We conduct scientifically backed methods of Zen in the office, online and in temples to suit all the needs. Experience authentic Zen meditation as if you are in a Zen temple at any time, anywhere.
