Days that will heal your heart

Spend some time viewing the scattering of islands. Play on the sandy beach shining in the evening sun. Stroll through the stunning foliage and the rows of ginkgo trees.

Think of it. Maybe nothing liberates and heals our minds like nature, for we can enjoy the many expressions of nature at every change of seasons.

Aichi is truly a blessed place where you can always feel Japan’s four seasons in your bones.

Takeshima Island, floating in Mikawa Bay off Gamagori City

Takeshima Island is the core of the Mikawa Bay Quasi-National Park.

This restaurant/hotel now makes its mark as the site for the “Literary Memorial by the Sea.”
