"Forest bathing" is a popular activity in America, but it originated from Japanese "shinrinyoku." Why not give it a try in this virgin forest? Kirara no Mori is a natural treasure trove. Here, 200-year-old giant trees grow thickly and many wild birds and wetland plants can be spotted. Just walking in the depths of the forest will be enough to set your heart at ease and bring a feeling of happiness—that's the effect of "shinrinyoku."
In the autumn foliage season, when the forest is enveloped by gorgeous colors, an even more spectacular sight will spread all around. At Lake Dando, you can lure or fly fish while admiring the fantastic scenery reflected in the surface of the lake. It's an absolute must-see.
