Situated in a mountain valley in Tsu city, Mie Prefecture, central Japan, Misugi is a small village bordering on Nara Prefecture. Many historical sites which date back to Muromachi period (1336 – 1573) can be found across the village, and its natural beauty was recognized as a ‘Forest Therapy Base’ only in Tokai area.

Walks (Guided tour)
On this stargazing experience, there is a high probability of coming across wild (but sweet!) deer.
It is also true, however, that we suffer from wildlife damage.
This eco-tour will bring you the beauty of nature and make you think about regional issues.
The power of natural forests has the skin-beautifying effect as well as improves immune functions. Soaking in a hot spring (in Misugi Resort!) is believed to enhance these benefits. Nothing is as pleasant as a walk in woods!
Under such circumstances, Miura Rinsho, one of the forestry experts, works in Misugi with respecting traditions while also innovating. They will tell a story about the forest industry, moon phase harvesting, etc. and take you into the forest to show you how to cut down trees, operate heavy machinery and shave off the bark of the trees.
Sitting with local elderly people, you will enjoy the way or how people spend their time and sekku culture in Misugi handed down across the generations (traditional food is a must!). Feel the traditional culture and touch the warmth and hospitality of the people in Misugi!

and culture generates a more authentic
and memorable trip!"" We provide unique
cultural activities, entertainment and
learning opportunities to those who wish
to feel the real rural life.
