Discover Zen philosophy and ancestral Japanese practices, originating from this philosophy.
RETREAT HOLIDAY IN KYOTO
Much more than a simple guided tour and different from a retreat, Happynes't proposes a discovery of Zen and Japanese culture, both traditional and contemporary.
During the stay, you will have the opportunity to attend a daily Meridians Stretching (Japanese Yoga) course, meditate in Zen temples, participate in a tea ceremonies (Chanoyu), spend the evening with a Maiko, discover the tea of the region by tasting it and visiting a tea plantation, contemplate Zen gardens and immerse in the serenity of temples, visit Imperial villas and enjoy the benefits of onsens.
This trip will lead you to less touristic paths, take you to less known places, confront you and help you to absorb Japanese culture, introduce you to craftsmen, bring experiences, and help you to understand the real meaning of Zen.
Furthemore, May in Japan is characterized by a rich and green nature. The magnificent iris are in bloom and azaleas colos the city in a vivid pink.
Nourish yourself, be amazed, relax and breathe!
