On the 21st of July 2012, Hokuozan Sogenji opened their doors for the local community to experience Zazen meditation and to discover the new premises. Many of the visitors have known this place for generations and where suprised to see how bright it has become. They where thankful that the place is well taken care of as many other farms in the community where abandoned and breaking down. There was great interest in the weekly meditation group, and there was also the request for regular public events. The neighbours helped making vegetarian sushi and Daniel hosted the bazaar. About 160 people attended throughout the whole 6 hours of the event.
In preparation for the event the Pavillion and the Doves where raised.
