Zenshuji is a Sōtō Zen temple dedicated to bringing the 2,500-year-old teachings of Shakyamuni Buddha to America as illuminated by Dōgen Zenji and Keizan Zenji, the Two Founders of Sōtō Zen Buddhism.


Our mission is to offer the ethnically diverse area of greater Los Angeles guidance in Sōtō Zen practice for those interested in satisfying spiritual, intellectual, and social needs.


Zenshuji is located in the heart of Los Angeles in the Little Tokyo/Arts District area. We offer Zen practice for all people in a unique Japanese-style setting.


Please join us. Zenshuji is an oasis of calm in the midst of the fast pace of urban life.
