What’s “Urban Forest Tour”


Our most recent tourist attraction in Japan is Urban Forest Tour

We have prepared the “Urban Forest Tour” for international visitors to Japan, where you can unwind and revive yourself after working or travelling.

A new program for forest bathing experiences is being proposed by the NPO organization “itswellness,” which has been pushing “Wellness Tourism,” a tourism concept that promotes physical and emotional well-being. The tourist concept is known by the name “Urban Forest Tour”. The setting is a well-known park or garden in the heart of the city.

Although the practice of ‘forest bathing’ has its roots in Japan, it has attracted considerable attention across the globe due to scientific evidence showing that it helps reduce stress, balance the autonomic nervous system, and enhance immune function. On the other hand, “Forest Bathing” is a form of recreation that everybody can benefit from while taking part. So, using the experience and insights of forest bathing, we developed a unique tour. Our tours are not like bullet tours. With us, you can relax and unwind at your pace.

Methodology for Urban Forest Tour

Our tour is based on the following itinerary:

  • 01

    Gathering & Reception

    Your tour guide will introduce you to the unique aspects of the sites where the tour will be held, and will also ask about your physical well-being and your goals for the day. We will also explain the benefits and goals of taking a forest bath.

  • 02

    Check your health (Before)

    We will assess your health before the trip begins so that it can be conducted safely and effectively.

  • 03

    Beginning of the tour

    Step into the city forest. Immerse yourself in the forest atmosphere to slowly release your daily stress and fatigue.

  • 04

    Enjoy your 5 senses

    Take a slow walk, breathe deeply in the forest, enjoy the sights, sounds, smells and sensations of nature!

  • 05

    Take a Deep Breath and Relax!

    Everyone in the forest has been taking deep diaphragmatic breaths to relax their bodies. You can relax and let the vitality of the forest restore your whole body by lying down on the grass. It takes about 15 minutes to complete this “refreshing with the forest” experience.

  • 06

    Sharing is caring

    Let’s share any sensory insights or changes with everyone while enjoying tea or water. One person fell asleep while lying on the grass. Others said they enjoyed having ideas come to them. Everyone experiences feelings differently.

  • 07

    Check your health (After)

    We will evaluate your health after the tour and compare the results with the results obtained before the tour. We will observe any changes in your physique and experience the variations. But please be careful, this tour is not a medical procedure, health examination, it is just an enjoyable excursion.


Make it a habit

As you did on the Urban Forest Tour, spend about 1-2 hours a week in a park, garden, or suburban forest near your home. A two-hour forest bathing can boost mood, reduce stress- related mental fatigue, and promote both physical and mental health.

And if you can’t visit parks, gardens, or forests, take advantage of online forest bathing for a similar experience to walking through a forest. We are also preparing to create a virtual tour using the Urban Forest Tour method.
