For your pleasure

Would you like to enjoy a wellness tour in Japan? Spending time in nature is good for your wellbeing. The Japanese have known this for years. We even have a term for it: shinrin-yoku which means forest bathing and references the wondrous effects that spending time in nature does for people.

 

 

SHINRINYOKU

For your wellness

SHINRIN-YOKU (Forest Bathing) began in Japan in the 1980s and has spread all over the world in the 40 years since then. Nowadays it is revered in many countries as an easily accessible, healthy way to spend time in nature. Although this is not widely known by Japanese themselves, the word SHINRIN-YOKU is used in other languages as-is, in a similar fashion to MATCHA and WAGYU, and enjoyed on weekends, days off and vacations.

 

 

Online tours

For your discovery

We developed the Virtual Tour during the coronavirus pandemic. And we thought to ourselves, this is the future of travel! The world has become so accessible that there are only a few places where we can make our travels happen. There are just too many places we want to go, and not enough time or environment to go! In that case, take a virtual tour. Even when you are tired, the images of our virtual tour, full of nature's greenery, will calm your sympathetic nerves.

WELLNESS TOURS

For your wellbeing

We believe in the power of nature, and in nature’s ability to heal, restore and rejuvenate. It is our goal to bring you along with us in our pursuit of bringing forest bathing and wellness vacations to the world. We have been gathering information and distributing it to help international travelers experience new places and adventures that will expand their knowledge and wellbeing. As we look into the future, we know that our mission to share wellness tours will make the world a healthier, happier place.
