Sogen isn’t far from the entrance of the Golden Temple. Once you enter the gates you’ll be able to speak to a monk who lets you know that Sogen is sweeping the temple. Rather than heading up to the massive main pagoda in front of you, go to the building on the left of you instead. Sogen can be found on the outer ring of this building sweeping leaves and trying to stay unassuming. 

Make your way to the building noted by the arrow above, and follow the wooden outer path round to the right. Sogen should be on the corner, and you can speak with him by hitting R2 when close. Once you know where Sogen is in Ghost of Tsushima, it seems pretty obvious. But don’t blame yourself too much for missing him, as plenty of players have done the same! He’s trying to remain unassuming anyway.

Once you’ve spoken to Sogen, you can meet with Lady Masako on the other side of the temple to start tailing the shifty monk. Before you, you might want to stop by the various people around the temple who can help you upgrade armor and weapons for the journey ahead. The Golden Temple is a great place to return to down the line whenever you want more upgrades.
