WELCOME TO HORAKUAN

Experience sacred space, silence, meditation, nature to find the stillness within.
Horakuan is a Zen Buddhist Retreat Center nestled in the mountains of Suzaka in Nagano prefecture. Removed from everyday hassles it allows a spiritual journey to connect with our innate wholeness and lead us into a place of spiritual renewing, nourishing our soul.

We welcome you to join us in exploring Zen Buddhism, spend some quiet time in nature or take part in our activities.
