Aman launches healing forest bathing retreat in Japanese national park

Luxury hotel group Aman has created a nature-centric wellness retreat for its remote Japanese resort in Mie, called Amanemu, located in a sprawling national park.

The four-night programme has been developed to help guests support immunity through exposure to nature and experience the benefits of nature immersion, such as stress relief, improved sleep and a healing effect on the mind.

During the programme, guests participate in daily forest-bathing and hiking excursions where they're guided through waterfall-laced mountains and dense forests populated with sacred outdoor shrines.

With a starting cost of JPY 1,200,000, (£8,554, US$11,665, €9,457), the schedule is completed with breathwork sessions, Zazen meditation and rituals hosted by local monks, a traditional Japanese Tea Ceremony and nourishing Japanese wellness cuisine using macrobiotic ingredients.

Over the course of their stay, guests will be also offered a choice of healing spa treatments including an aquatic bodywork treatment and either a shiatsu massage, acupuncture or a blend of shiatsu and moxa – the burning of dried mugwort leaves on certain points of the body.

Following daily activities, Amanemu is encouraging guests to make use of its 2,000sq m spa’s traditional Japanese hot springs – called Onsen – to ease muscles after an active day of trekking.

The expansive Japanese wellness centre is inspired by water and features two onsen bathing pools, a steamroom and dry sauna.
