Celebrate spirituality

Spirituality and nature come together in Japanese culture as the two major religions Shinto and Buddhism have intertwined over centuries. Like nature, there’s a sense of impermanence or constant change slipping through daily life which needs to be constantly celebrated.

This celebration of spirituality is woven through art forms like taiko drumming and the art of batto, or Japanese swordsmanship, which are both about a meeting of spirit and nature.

Visitors to Tokyo can immerse themselves wholeheartedly in Japanese spirituality -whether it be through meditation, or spending time in a rich mineral hot-spring in the hushed surrounds of a secluded garden.

It’s all about reflection and finding your purpose in every discipline and we’ve suggested a few experiences worth sampling.
