A kuri is the kitchen of a Zen monastery,[1] typically located behind the Butsuden (or, Buddha Hall). Historically the kuri was a kitchen which prepared meals only for the abbot and his guests, though in modern Japan the kuri now functions as the kitchen and administrative office for the entire monastery.[2][3]
