A journey to feel the “nature”, “hot springs”, “food” and “history” of the western part of Sendai

Let your body move the brush innocently to find peace within yourself in the quiet, deep mountains.

Otaki Fudoson is also known as a back palace of “Yamadera”.
Sutra handwriting in a cal, silent atmosphere will relax your soul.
Find yourself by moving your brush step by step.
