Having 450 years history, Kenkohji’s dharma light that was transmitted for generations and its architecture have been preserved for years by the 17 chief priests. As 18th chief priest, I will succeed their mind and preserve its dharma light transmission, and will exert myself for development of this temple as an anchorage of people’s heart and for popularization of Zen culture. We would greatly appreciate your understanding and cooperation.

with best respect
Rev, Shunmyo Masuno
