Escape to Japan’s most westerly island in Kyushu, to the Kunisaki Peninsula, for a seven-day break to restore optimal wellness. The itinerary includes instructed meditation by the abbot-in-waiting at the nearby Fuki-ji Temple, followed by yoga sessions and Japanese breakfast.
The retreat, tailored for body, mind and soul, will also focus on elements of the Japanese culture, such as ikebana flower arranging, chado tea ceremony, Japanese taiko drumming and making soba buckwheat noodles. Sleep on futon cushions on tatami matting in true Japanese style.
Kunisaki was one of the first places to welcome Buddhism, and the retreat is adjacent to the Buddhist paradise on earth – the gokuraku jodo.
