So that you can get an idea, here is
the common thread of this study tour, the Spiritual Japan Niwaki Tour©.
It is initially composed of 12/13 days of visits and discoveries during which you will study and learn the art of niwaki and Japanese gardens. Each journey of each day thus includes one or more garden tours with participation in demonstrations and events related to the plants, or a mini-lecture on the basics of the art of the Japanese garden, or the practice of an activity ....
Discovery or culture, some other visits will relate to additional topics of the Japanese Garden and its tea ceremony, architecture, decoration ...
As we study the art of Japanese garden for spiritual lights it provides and as its name suggests, Spiritual Japan Niwaki Tour©, this tour is associated with a work on oneself. It is an immersion in a long-hidden Japan, the garden world, a world of contrasts such as the colors of pines and black cedars, mosses and granite or basalt stones, in an abounding nature. During these 12 days we work to give shape to a new model of social life where art and beauty become a generator of a daily economy and even more of hope and vitality. We take advantage of this fascinating initiatory journey, because it is quite particular, to think about our condition of being alive and to give another measure to the creation (of our life), far from the urgencies of urbanity and modern life.
The main feature of this study tour Spiritual Japan Niwaki Tour© is the scarcity. This is not a simple touristic tour, but a study tour, initiatory journey performed in consciousness.

accurate and detailed of all the services included and not included in this Spiritual Niwaki Japan Tour© of 12/13 days of visits and discoveries,
during which you will study and learn the art of niwaki and Japanese gardens in a technical and aesthetic setting with work on oneself,
as I propose you.

You will find there all the details of the services, but about the circuit, only the main events are reported in the visits list, which remains an example, to allow you at most of the surprise of discovery for all smaller events but charming I reserve for you every day. The final program can in any case only be approved a few days before departure, to allow the visit of exhibitions and special events scheduled during this period and organization of daily visits are likely to switch, some of which are subject to strict constraints. Then it will be communicated to you precisely.
