An Template:Nihongo, or Template:Nihongo, is a Japanese term for a three-month period of intense training for students of Zen Buddhism, lasting anywhere from 90 to 100 days.[1] The practice during ango consists of meditation (zazen), study, and work (samu(作務)).

Ango is typically held twice a year, the first period from spring to summer and the second period from fall to winter.[2] The word ango literally translates as "dwelling in peace"; the summer ango is referred to as ge-ango and the winter period is u-ango.[3] Additionally, some monasteries and Zen centers hold just one ango per year.[4]
