During the last field trip, students from Fukuoka school visited Sasaguri, a small town about two hours from Fukuoka. It was an exciting day of hiking, sight-seeing, and finding inner peace.

First, let’s have some quiet calligraphy time! Japanese calligraphy, or Shudo, helps one to clear their minds and calm the soul.

But apparently, our students are starting to feel the pain in their legs… Definitely need to work harder on those Japanese meditation sitting positions.

And now it’s time to head out to have a good stretch!

Introducing the largest bronze reclining Buddha in Japan in Nanzo-In. While students in Tokyo can easily visit the Giant Buddha in Kamakura, this gigantic monument in the south is definitely worth a trip down to Fukuoka.

Some of our more adventurous students also decided to take up the waterfall challenge.
