Buddhist Wedding Service in English at Historical Temple in Kyoto



Shunkoin Temple is located in a quiet, peaceful area of Kyoto, Japan. The temple was established in 1590 and has historical gardens and lavishly colored screen paintings.

Our wedding ceremony includes:
1. Chanting of the Heart Stutra (Parajinaparamita).
2. Vows lead by an officiant (priest).
3. Exchange of your own vows and rings.
4. Sake-sharing ritual (san san kudo).
5. Recitation of a special vow. This is vow is written in Japanese and English in certificate-style and is signed by both partners.
6. Proclamation of the marriage.

The couple in the pictures on the top had their wedding in Japanese traditional wedding kimono. But you can wear whatever you want for your wedding.

  1. They helped us put together a great menu, from the consultation to the tasting to the actual event. The wedding venues had biscuits and gravy, cornbread muffins, fried catfish, jambalaya, enormous pieces of fried chicken

    1. These days, around half of all marriages end in divorce.

      That’s a pretty sad statistic… especially because so many of those divorces are preventable.

      In reality, many marriages end prematurely. Why? Well, there are two reasons.

      Neither spouse knows how to prevent the passion, intimacy, and romantic connection from gradually fading away.
      They make the 3 “Marriage Murdering Mistakes” that very few people know about… and sadly, these 3 mistakes can quickly drive your marriage into disaster and divorce.
      If you’re in this situation…

      If your marriage is dead-as-a-doornail…

      If you’re heading towards divorce, or even if you’re already at that point…

      Then a new video by marriage coach Brad Browning will show you how to stop the downward spiral and breathe some life back into your relationship. (Brad’s a freakin’ genius, by the way.)

      =>Begin Repairing Your Marriage *Today* <=

      I wish I could force every couple experiencing a marriage crisis to watch this new video… because the strategies Brad reveals in it are extremely powerful and might be the difference between “unhappily divorced” and “happily ever after”.

      The best part is that you can apply the techniques described in his video on your own… without your wife even being aware that you’re making an effort to save the marriage.

      So don’t lose hope just because your partner refuses to attend marriage counselling, or won’t put in the effort to fix the problems that are slowly eating away at your marriage.

      Watch the video now by clicking here: Transform Your Marriage in Minutes<=

      There’s no catch to this, and no marketing gimmicks… just a complimentary in-depth guide to saving your marriage.

      At the very least, you should watch the first few minutes where Brad reveals the 3 ‘Marriage Murdering Mistakes’… these 3 massive myths alone are a huge reason why nearly half of all marriages end in divorce.

      Don’t give up on love yet. Take action today and begin re-building your marriage… start by clicking the link below to watch the video now.

      ==> Fix Your Marriage – Start Making HAPPY Memories<==

      The techniques in the video have already worked for hundreds of married couples…. and they’ll work for you, too. What are you waiting for?

      Here’s to a happy, healthy, and long-lasting marriage!

      Talk to you soon,
