Experience mindfulness through meditations at Zenbo Seinei in Awaji Island




Located amidst the pristine nature of Awaji Island, Zenbo Seinei is a wellness facility to rejuvenate the body and mind by adopting the philosophy of Zen.


Designed by architect Shigeru Ban, winner of the Pritzker Architecture Prize, Zenbo Seinei features a 100-meter long wooden deck where you can feel the warmth and aroma of Japanese cedar. 
The retreat was developed as a place to allow visitors to experience Zen through experiences such as Zazen meditation, yoga and healthy eating. If you would like to escape from the commotion of everyday life and experience a moment of peace and tranquility in a rich natural environment, this is the place to be. 



Zenbo Seinei offers both one-day and overnight packages including the ZEN Wellness Plan, a one-day retreat, and the ZEN Stay Plan, an overnight experience in which guests have the chance to stay in rooms boasting aromatic wooden flooring and expansive glass windows that let in the natural light.
Rejuvenate your body and mind and enjoy a moment of inner reflection in the open air, with a 360-degree panoramic view of Awaji Island that changes with each season.
