【Forest therapy in winter】
As a field for winter forest therapy and forest therapy walks,the heart-shaped lake ” Hokuryu” where I spent time since childhood,is the stage for you to experience and feel the healing effects of the winter forest.
A quiet winter forest has a unique healing effect, both visually and aurally.Its effects have also been observed in medical research studies aimed at balancing the sympathetic and parasympathetic nerves.
Everything is covered with snow, sometimes it snows deeply,and the “Winter Forest” has a unique scent from the sense of smell.I call it “Snow Scent“

A winter forest that seems to be asleep at first glance.But the plants and animals are quietly breathing.
The winter buds of plants are packed with a lot of fun wisdom.The animals also change their winter coats and leave distinctive footprints on the snow.Sometimes you can enjoy animal tracking ♪

【Nature Observation】 At first glance, the winter forest seems to be asleep, but plants and animals are quietly breathing. The winter buds of the plant are filled with fun and wisdom. Animals also often leave footprints in the snow. Sometimes, it is also possible to quietly enjoy animal tracking♪
