Summary

Our Japan yoga retreat begins with a Shinkansen train journey from Tokyo to Yamanishi prefecture. We spend 4 nights at a private Japanese farm perched on the side of a mountain, surrounded by forests with a fantastic view of the world famous Mount Fuji. Our spacious accommodation includes gorgeous ensuite bedrooms, exquisitely designed traditional gardens with lily ponds and waterfalls, an orchard, a farm and beautiful herb gardens.

Here we practice twice daily yoga with Adam, meditate with a Zen master, experience shinrin-yoku (forest bathing) and spend an afternoon on the farm. There is plenty of time to rest, soak in the baths, enjoy the steam room and book a massage. For those wanting more action there is an option to add a 5 hour guided trek up a nearby mountain with Fuji views all the way. Your delicious international style meals are prepared from seasonal produce harvested from nearby farms.

We then head north to the Nagano region for 3 nights in a traditional Japanese mountain town with temples, shrines and bath houses. Our location has magnificent sweeping views across the valley and surrounding mountains. We spend our days practicing yoga, exploring our charming hot spring village and hiking to a temple. Our hosts prepare our breakfast and the rest of the meals will be taken at traditional local restaurants.
