Stand-Up Paddleboard Yoga at Mukaigahama Tropical Garden
Commune with the sea and find inner strength in a tropical island atmosphere

Stand up paddleboard (SUP) yoga is a recent trend that originated in Hawaii to be enjoyed on the water. Visitors to Tropical Garden can experience this fusion of physical fitness, mindfulness, and outdoor enjoyment in an idyllic setting. Under the guidance of a trained instructor, work on core training of the body while focusing on breathing and balancing simultaneously connecting with nature.
You'll find Tropical Garden in Mie Prefecture along the Kumano-Nada coast in the town of Taiki, which calls to mind an island in the South Pacific. Escape to the extraordinary ambiance of this secluded farming and fishing village with a population of around 9,000, and you're sure to find refreshment and relaxation for the body and mind. Before or after your workout, take the time to explore the town and take in its beautiful scenery, including Tsuzurato-toge Pass Trail, part of the World Heritage sites of Kumano Kodo.
The town offers many guest houses and local inns for staying the night. With festivals held in all seasons and delicious local seafood including sublime Ise-ebi spiny lobster and yellowtail, it's a perfect destination for travelers looking to make a deeper connection with Japanese marine culture.
