Our Philosophy

cfde35e1737d5cef44b6c9c5da04c4af_s.pngBy focusing on the relaxing effects of being exposed to nature, we have conducted a number of physiology, psychology and physical experiments to examine the various influence on us. Based on our findings, we have started certification process for “Forest Therapy Base” and “Forest Therapy Road”across Japan. The “Forest Therapy” activities have recently gained interest as its practice has been officially recognized and higher awareness of health and stress management has occurred. The Specified nonprofit corporation, Forest Therapy Society was created to support practical forest therapy activities. Using the“Forest Therapy Base”as a domain, we provide opportunities for local businesses by linking visitors and service providers, and by training certified “Forest Therapist”and “Forest Therapy Guide”, and forest management assistance.
