The monastery is actually a small village of a few dozen stone monk's houses, three churches, some classrooms and agricultural support buildings.
Debre Bizen homes some 60 monks, who chose to live an austere life, and a fluctuating number of students in its religious school.
On March 22, 2005, the towns of Hinase and Yoshinaga (both from Wake District) were merged into Bizen.
As of this merger, the total area became 258.23 km².
