Yosano, Kyoto located in northern Kyoto

You can find the perfect environment to "discover and reconnect with oneself" by disconnecting from daily life and aligning the mind, body, and soul.

Long ago, this area was known as the Tango Kingdom. The land is still shrouded in myth and history with over 100 ancient tombs discovered in archaeological digs.

In modern times, the region has capitalized on its abundant natural resources to cultivate silkworms. As a significant producer of Nishijin brocade and Tango chirimen, a traditional Japanese silk fabric, the region truly overflows with the essence of Japanese culture and tradition.

Home to over 120 species of wild birds, the town coexists with nature in a circular economy amid oceans, mountains, and rivers as it has for generations.

As people, we do not exist solely to serve the economy but to enrich our spiritual lives. Perhaps we can draw inspiration from Japan's rich traditions and its natural beauty, to rediscover what it truly means to be human.
