We've uploaded the English version of SHINRIN-YOKU -Forest Bathing- the way to healthier you! Professor Qing Li of Nippon Medical School explains the health-promoting effects of forest bathing. You can learn more about how forest bathing lowers blood pressure and heart rate, improves mood, and boosts immunity.
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.
Hotel Chinzan-so Tokyo, located in the heart of Tokyo, is one of Japan's most historic, traditional, and prestigious hotels. In the Edo period (1603-1867), it was depicted in the Ukiyoe "Meisho Edo Hyakkei" (One hundred Famous Views of Edo), and in the Meiji period (1868-1912), it became the residence of the Prime Minister, preserving its quaint Japanese scenery to this day. In the garden on the grounds, which covers an area of approximately 20,000 tsubo (a land unit of measurement), you can enjoy the abundant nature that changes its expression from season to season and numerous historical sites, including the cherished since ancient times Camellia Mountain, the Rokanshi stone, and the Un Nishiki Pond.
