Forest bathing walk

Forest bathing walk

For forest bathing, we soften human stress and are effective in refreshing heart and body. The real identity is said to be "fittonchiddo".
Plant of the forest evaporates organic compound with sterilizing property to protect the body from growth failure and insect of other plants, eating disorder from animal, blight bacteria infection from microorganism. "fittonchiddo" means this material.

We discovered mysterious power of this plant, and, in about 1930, Dr. B.P. Keeton of former Soviet Union named fittonchiddo.
It means fitton (plant) chiddo (kill). fittonchiddo deodorizes refresh effect with material which is useful for human being, and there is an antibacterial effect.
Refreshment is got when we take a walk through the woods, but this is fittonchiddo.
Forest bathing course of our hotel is place that experimented on ingredient of this fittonchiddo for the first time.
It may be, so to speak, said that it is the forest bathing birthplace. We carry out natural walk, hot-spring resort walk every day to have many customers enjoy with heart and body.
