About Komyo ReikiDo

Go placidly amidst praise or blame

Komyo ReikiDo (pron. Koh-m-yoh Ray-key Doh) is about the development of our inner being to find strength & peace within, not just about hands-on healing. Komyo Reiki Do's purpose is to improve both mind & body, maintaining the best of health through Reiki practice. It is a simple & effective hands-on healing modality, emphasising spiritual development to achieve happiness & peace. Komyo ReikiDo is about being grounded, having a balanced lifestyle & discovering that calm & peace are not just confined to the practice room. It is about bringing that sense of balance into everyday life.

Komyo ReikiDo is about Reiki and nothing else. There are no add-ins from other cultures or New Age practices. While there are references to Buddhism or the Bible, this system is not about religion. This is a simple Reiki system with simple techniques that encourage looking within for spiritual growth resulting in resilience.


Komyo Reiki was founded by Hyakuten Inamoto Sensei in 1998 after much research & practice with his teacher. Komyo ReikiDo is based on traditional Japanese practices & not to be confused with Gendai Reiki Ho or any other Reiki system. This is a system founded & developed in Kyoto Japan.

Komyo  =  Illumination, enlightenment
Reiki     =  Sacred, transcendental
                energy of the Universe
Do        =  Way or Path

Hyakuten Inamoto, Founder of Komyo ReikiDo

Hyakuten Inamoto is a Pure Land Buddhist Monk & a native of Kyoto Japan. In 1997, Hyakuten sensei started learning Reiki from Chiyoko Yamaguchi, attending weekly meetings with 4 others as well as visiting Mrs Yamaguchi privately. Hyakuten sensei wanted to teach & share Reiki with others so in 1998, Komyo Reiki Kai was born. His training with Mrs. Yamaguchi ended after about a year.

Hyakuten sensei has researched the history of Reiki over many years and has debunked many stories that have arisen since Reiki came to the west. Being Japanese, he is in a unique position to verify facts from fiction where others have been unsuccessful through language and cultural blocks.

In 2016, Hyakuten sensei changed the name of his Reiki system to Komyo ReikiDo, reflecting the spiritual emphasis of Reiki. Reiki is not just a hands-on healing modality but a spiritual path.  Reiki is a mind body practice, treating the whole as originally intended by the founder of Reiki, Mikao Usui. He has included some Buddhist teachings into Komyo ReikiDo to enhance spiritual growth.

Hyakuten sensei travels the world teaching Reiki to as many people as he can. He also conducts tours up Mt. Kurama as well as hosts regular Reiki share groups in Kyoto. He is an inspiration to many, an advocate for truth and unity amongst all Reiki practitioners and teachers of all Reiki systems.
