Mount Minobu (Minobu-san) is home to Kuonji Temple, the headquarters of the Buddhist Nichiren-shu sect. Kuonji offers you the chance to embrace traditional Japanese Buddhist customs — the aroma of incense, droning sutra chants and the calming rhythm of copying sutras by hand, are your gateways to an all-new experience. To really do it properly, book a stay at the nearby Gyogakuin Kakurinbo temple lodgings. Eat simple but nourishing shojin ryori — traditional vegetarian Buddhist fare — as you feed your spiritual curiosity. Mt. Minobu is in Yamanashi Prefecture, about 3 hours by road, from Tokyo.
