Guided Tours

The EKŌ-House consists of a Buddhist temple, a Japanese garden, a house in the traditional style, with tea room, and, in the basement of the main building, an exhibition space or lecture room, two seminar rooms, and a hall for larger events. A further building, the Kyōsei-kan, completed in 1999, houses an international kindergarden and a public library with archive, reading room and guest rooms.

We offer different types of guided tours for different groups and numbers of people.

Guided tours are unfortunately not possible until further notice.
