Itinerary

Most tourists visit Fushimi Inari Shrine for the thousand torii gates, but rarely do they delve deeper into the shrine's history and tradition. Learn about Shinto rituals and practice two forms of meditation on this experience.

XJ will guide you through the shrine with recorded videos and audio that will make it seem that you are really at one with the forest at Fushimi Inari.

Together you will practice compassion meditation in front of the gratitude god and the eye power god, and then you will be taken to a sacred waterfall in a secret part of the shrine that tourists normally miss out on. Together you will concentrate on the sound of the waterfall and "forest bathe" from the comfort of your home.

Afterward, there will be an opportunity to share the sensations and thoughts going through your mind during the meditations. Get tips and suggestions for your next nature-focused trip to Japan!

So, what are you waiting for? The Fushimi Inari Shrine and the view from the sacred mountain awaits! Are you looking for an alternative with more focus on subjects, temples, or want to make it family friendly? It’s possible! Your online experience can be 100% personalized, just let me know and I'll take care of it.

This experience is 100% online. While you are at home, your host will connect with you from their city via a link that will be provided to you. For this experience, your host will be hosting from their home using their camera. All you have to do is get your computer ready, have a proper internet connection, and enjoy your tour in a comfy setting.
