Okutama Forest Therapy 奥多摩森林セラピー

215-6 Hikawa, Okutama-machi, Tokyo

Comfort and cure with the sights, scents, and sounds of nature

Forest therapy, or Shinrin-yoku, is the practice of immersing oneself in an environment full of trees. It is scientifically proven to reduce stress, lower blood pressure and improve one's overall well-being. With its giant trees and lush greenery, Okutama was the first area in Tokyo to be approved as a site for forest therapy.

Apply for a tour, and an Okutama Town-certified forest therapy guide will accompany you on one of the five available therapy roads. You can also enjoy yoga in the woods or take relaxing classes such as pottery or making soba noodles. Bask in the sunlight filtering through trees and feel rejuvenated as nature takes your worries away.
