Welcome to Seattle Koyasan Buddhist Temple
Seattle Koyasan Buddhist Temple is located in the Central District of Seattle, Washington. We are a temple in the Shingon-shu 真言宗 (Shingon Sect) of Japanese Buddhism. Shingon-shu traces its origins to the lineage founder, Kobo Daishi. Kobo Daishi (the Monk Kukai) brought esoteric Buddhism to Japan from China in the 9th century C.E. Please come join us for our services and events as we learn and practice Shingon Buddhism. Our web page is currently being updated to include a wealth of information relating to the cosmological structure and history of Shingon-shu.
