What is a medicinal herbs retreat?
When the mind moves, the body changes.

Once you find your true self, your mind and body will be healthy. Yakuzen retreat® is a unique wellness retreat program based on Chinese medicine, which believes that people are a part of nature. Yakuzen retreat® is a program that helps people to balance the 3 minds, 4 yin-yang balances, and 7 chakras for a healthy mind and body.

For this purpose, we propose four approaches, food&tea breathing, self-writing, and self-touch retreats, combining “how to eat,” “how to balance the mind,” and “Yakuzen retreat® Yakuzen tea.

We believe that one of these, “eating,” is the closest to nature. We take the life of nature and transfer it to our own life. Mie’s art kitchen is a wellness program where you eat, feel, and share delicious food, and when you realize it, your body and mind will be healthy.

Be yourself and peace of mind. Be yourself, always with a peaceful heart. We hope to share a fun and delicious time with you with medicinal cuisine using delicious ingredients from Karuizawa.
