Report: Welcome Event for New International Students “Let’s Try “Shakyo” -Hand-Copying Sutra-” (presented by SIED)

Updated Apr. 23, 2019
On April 20th (Sat.), SIED hosted “Let’s Try “Shakyo” ~Hand-Copying Sutra~” at Daikaku-ji temple in Arashiyama as a welcome event for new international students.
Many of the participants were international students who is not familiar with Japanese kanji and writing brush. Although shakyo was quite hard for them, they tried it seriously. Finally, most participants completed their shakyo, and dedicated what they wrote to Daikaku-ji temple with their wish.
In Dakaku-ji temple, there are some historical and famous spots such as “Murasame-no-roka Corridor” and “Osawa-no-ike Pond”. After the shakyo, participants took a lot of pictures there. If you have never tried shakyo, why don’t you go to Daikaku-ji temple once?
SIED will host many interesting intercultural events throughout the semester. We look forward to seeing you soon!
