Dear Individuals Applying for Refugee Status,

The Koshoji Temple Meditation Hall is founded on the buddha’s teachings of compassion. We are aware that those of you seeking refugee status face many struggles, including securing housing and food. We would like to help. You are welcome to come and stay at Koshoji Temple while your refugee application is being processed. We hope that living at our temple will help prepare you for life in Japan by providing an opportunity to learn about Japanese culture, language, and Buddhism. While living at the temple, you will not have to worry about housing or food. However, you will be expected to do daily temple chores and follow the schedule of the monks in training. We hope to aid people in real need. If you are interested, please contact us using the information below.
