Yō E An

Yō E An is a place for the practice and study of Japanese Shingon Buddhism. In addition we strive to pursue the fine-tuning of our knowledge of Buddhism in general and of Japanese Buddhism in particular.



The Shingon-school is one of the main Buddhist schools within the Japanese Buddhist tradition. It was established in the first half of the 9th century by the Buddhist master Kūkai, posthumously known as Kōbō Daishi.


Meditation is practiced in small Meditation Circles called Mitsuzenkai, meaning “gathering for Shingon meditation.”


Four times a month a traditional Shingon offer ceremony is held at Yō E An. There are also several ceremonies that are held annually.
