In 1955 he met Zen priest Nyogen Senzaki, one of the early proponents of Zen practice in the U.S. He returned to Kyoto, Japan in 1961. In 1965 he joined the priesthood. He served four times as president of the Kyoto chapter of Ikebana International, and published books on arranging flowers for tea practice, and several other books in Japanese, including his memoirs, a 1992 book of essays about temple life, and a 2003 dialogue with the noted author and Buddhist priest Tsutomu Mizukami about life, death and Zen titled "Jisei no Kotoba" ("Poems for Leaving the World"). He died in 2012. Pat Murosako was a Kendo Master, and graphic designer, who knew Mittwer from at least the 1960's to his death.
