* Eiheiji is open every day to visitors from 8:30 am until 4:30 pm. Admission is 500 yen and no reservation is necessary. However, as Eiheiji is a traditional Soto Zen training monastery, possibilities for overnight stays and retreats are very limited. Foreign applicants who are associated with a Soto Zen organization should send a letter signed by their teacher to the Eiheiji International Department at least one month before their desired stay. Otherwise they must apply through the Fukui Tour Guides Association:
