I am planning on going to Japan for the World Shakuhachi Festival in late spring. While there I am hoping to visit Taigu & Jundo, temples in and around Kyoto as well as the in-laws in Tokyo & Hachinohe. Probably not having a lot of opportunities to travel to Japan, I thought I'd look into the possibility of having a small retreat. Maybe 3-5 days. I've contacted Antaiji and am discussing the particulars, however I was hoping to see if anyone from Treeleaf has ever practiced there and if they have any tips or suggestions? I am hoping that my shakuhachi sensei may have an interest in joining me as well.
If anyone has any experience or know of other's experiences I'd greatly appreciate the feedback.
