The "Sublime SUKIYA" TOUR is a study tour of 12 days/13 nights which takes place in Kyoto and its surroundings, on the theme of Japanese niwaki and gardens (open to anyone adult, from any country, fluent in English).

Beyond the colossal sum of technical and aesthetic information that I will give you on the art of the Japanese garden, it is an initiatory journey, 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 and basalt stones. 

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 latest scientific studies have shown that substances secreted by trees and other plants have the power to vitalize our immune system by boosting the number of killer cells and anti-cancer proteins.

If it is impossible for us to live in the nature and in the vicinity of a forest where the air is charged with terpenes, the development of a therapeutic garden, arranged like a most natural landscape with privileged species, answers exactly to this type of intention.
