Les "bains de forêt"

Shinrin'yoku 森林浴, l'art à la japonaise de se soigner à travers des bains de forêt

Les bains de forêt, appelés aussi shinrin'yoku, sont un merveilleux moyen de comprendre le mystérieux lien qui unit le peuple japonais à la nature depuis des millénaires

Les Japonais ont toujours vénéré la montagne et les forêts, aussi loin que la civilisation japonaise a existé. 

Là où il y a une montagne, il y a un kami (divinité Shinto).

Venez vous essayer aux bains de forêt et absorbez toute la puissance des kami japonais!
