“I wish I could soothe my mental fatigue from daily life.” There is a course which makes such a wish come true! The course starts from a relaxing walk in a forest while observing beautiful terraced rice fields. After indulging in nature, participators can get relaxed having lunch. Then, pack the air and sent which you felt during a forest bath into an aromatic spray to get relaxed even after going home. The trip idea is introduced here.
 Joined a guide. Let’s go for a healing trip! Nice to meet you!
 The guide is a specialist of terraced rice fields. He teaches many things from the history to structure of terraced rice fields during a walk.
 “This bamboo’s circumference is square not round”, says the guide. It’s really square! Why!?
 The sunlight from between trees, that’s the very Komorebi (sunshine through leaves). The guide’s smile makes me more relaxed!
 The view spreads when I look up. I realize fresh air course through my entire body.
 After moving my body with a walk, let’s have a local mom’s home-made “Hokkori Boxed Meal”!
 Healthy rice with cereals and 13 varieties of side meals are stuffed up. It’s colorful and perfect volume and deliciousness!
 After lunch, with a relaxing feeling, I try my hand at making an aromatic spray. Firstly, taking apart cypress leaves found during a walk ...
 The leaves are put into a still to make distilled water. It’s the fundamental item for aromatic spray making.
 Three aromatic oils selected out of nine are blended. The instructor provides careful counseling from aroma characteristic to healing effect.
 After aromatic oil is added in a small amount of alcohol, distilled water is poured making the color like this. Depending on the selected oil, the color turns into white sometime!
 The personal healing aroma, an original aromatic spray is completed! Let’s get healed even after going home!!
