Zen Pilates at Jyuge Shrine

Your Zen Pilates session will be held at Jyuge Shrine, which is located in a small forest overlooking Lake Biwa. It's said that a female goddess is enshrined here. The locals have looked after the shrine since long ago.

Fresh Lunch Cooking at a Farmhouse

After refreshing yourself with a Pilates session, you'll enjoy making a delicious, homemade, country-style lunch at a friendly farmer’s house using homegrown rice and fresh vegetables. When the cooking session is over, you can try all the dishes that you have made. Guests may harvest fresh vegetables from the field before the cooking session depending on the season and the weather.
