Genuinely authentic. In this temple stay you truly are a guest. However, part of the enjoyment is observing the customs and rules. Amazing how you will notice the disconnect from the wired-in world after only a few hours. I recommend rising early to attend the morning sutra chanting. While fairly strict hours are in force, there is the luxury of beer! The food is fabulous and served by attentive junior monks. It can be a bit difficult to book in the busy season (think cherry blossoms), but worth it.
