Our first volcano! Mount Fuji is Japan's tallest peak at 3776 meters. It can even be seen from certain areas in Tokyo on a clear day. This view is from the Arakura Sengen Shrine in Kawaguchiko, which has the famous Churieto Pagoda (in one of my previous photos). You can visit Kawaguchiko on a day trip from Tokyo taking either the bus or train.
“Abandon your mobile phone, laptop, i-Pod and all such links to family, friends and work colleagues. Concentrate on where you are, deriving your entertainment from immediate stimuli, the tangible world around you. Increasingly, one sees "independent" travellers eagerly settling down in front of computers instead of conversing with fellow travellers. They seem only partially "abroad", unable to cut their links with home. Evidently the nanny state - and the concomitant trend among parents to over-protect offspring - has alarmingly diminished the younger generation's self-reliance. And who is to blame for this entrapment in cyberspace? Who but the fussy folk back at base, awaiting the daily (even twice daily) email of reassurance.” - Dervla Murphy

Who doesn’t like a long lazy lunch in a tree house ?! .
This is one of the first restaurants I have been to where the chef comes out to personally greet you and offers to cook anything you like , so long as they have the ingredients on the island.
Have you tried #watsu therapy before? We have and find it very meditative and calming for the mind.
This passive technique is derived from Zen Shiatsu and performed in a specialised warm-water pool. The buoyancy of the water supports you, while your joints are mobilised and muscles gently stretched by a therapist. Each move flows smoothly into the next, and is coordinated with an integral rhythm that allows emotional as well as physical progression. Through deep relaxation and nurturing, the mind can find peace and freeing the body from pain or discomfort. Try it out at your next retreat in @chivasomresort
