‘Depressed’ monk sues one of Japan’s most sacred Buddhist temples after non-stop tourist visits left him ‘overworked’

A Japanese monk is suing his temple, claiming he was forced to work non-stop catering to visiting tourists and that the heavy workload gave him depression, his lawyer said on Thursday. The monk in his forties is seeking 8.6 million yen ($78,000) from his temple on Mount Koya, a World Heritage Site also known as Koyasan that is regarded as one of the most sacred Buddhist sites in Japan.
