Luxury Wellness Holidays & Retreats in Japan

In this fascinating country which contrasts elegant modernity with rich cultural tradition, you can expect a luxury wellness retreat which combines the two for a relaxing, spiritual experience like no other. Japanese people live longer than almost anyone else in the world, and this is in part due to the mindful activities that are woven into everyday life, from soaking in natural hot springs, to the ritual of tea ceremonies, which promote mindfulness and gratitude, to practising Zen meditation during the traditional art of Shodo – Japanese calligraphy. Take a healing dip in the Onsen – volcanic hot springs, or awaken the senses in the picturesque Japanese gardens during the Cherry Blossom season in Kyoto. Whether you choose to wander through the Sagano bamboo groves of Kyoto’s Arashiyama, complete exhilarating hikes to the top of Mt Fuji or soak up the views of the mountain from lake Hakone, followed by beachtime and snorkelling in Okinawa’s famed beaches, there are limitless opportunities to connect with Japan’s traditional culture.
