Hachinoki Honten


Like the priests at Kenchoji Temple and many of the visiting faithful, Hachinoki Honten observes the precepts of shojin ryori, the traditional Buddhist vegetarian cuisine. This means that not only are all meat and fowl shunned, so too are fish, eggs and dairy products. In their place, elaborate multicourse meals are fashioned out of, primarily, tofu and vegetables.

In line with COVID-19 guidelines, the government is strongly requesting that residents and visitors exercise caution if they choose to visit bars, restaurants, music venues and other public spaces.
