About The Northern California Koyasan Temple
Welcome to the Northern California Koyasan Temple (Keigenji) where you can study and experience Shingon Buddhism. Shingon is a form of Japanese Esoteric Buddhism. This school was founded in 804 A.D. by Kukai (Kobo Daishi) in Japan.
Our temple in Sacramento was originally founded as the Sacramento Daishiko (a small group of followers of Kobo Daishi) a century ago in a farmhouse near the site of today’s William Land Park. It has since grown into a temple building with a social hall where regular monthly services, special services (Gokito), pancake breakfasts, taiko drumming classes and other activities are held
Every Third Sunday of the Month
Monthly and Special services will be streamed Via Zoom
Get in touch today to learn more about our services, become a member, schedule a wedding, or take taiko or karate classes.
