Forest Retreat

What is a Forest Retreat

We believe that many people have been feeling stressed and high anxiety by the rapidly
changing lifestyles over the recent years.

Under these circumstances, we created the "Forest Retreat" in the hopes of providing a place
where people can heal their minds and bodies in a space away from their daily routines.

Focusing on these concepts of “feeling nature,” “releasing stress,” and “taking care of one's
physical and mental health,” we provide a place where as many people as possible can enjoy a
relaxing and healing experience.

Foresta di luce, meaning “Forest of Light” in Italian, is located in the western part of Hiroshima Prefecture, surrounded by beautiful lush greenery.

The sunlight shining through the trees, the murmuring of the mountain streams, and the peaceful chirping of birds will surely relieve and soothe away your daily fatigue.

Room Types

  • villa


    The wooden villas are completely private and blend in with their natural surroundings. Each building has two rooms, and the center of the building divides each room from the others. The exterior walls are made of clay, creating a nostalgic yet innovative atmosphere, while the private garden connected to the LDK creates an open space. The private garden can also be used as a private dog run.

    The pavilions are individual lodging structures made of wood with distinctive triangular roofs. Guests can spend time on the outdoor deck no matter the weather thanks to the roof's integration with the exterior wall, which extends both indoors and outside. The pavilion is a place where you can both relax indoors and spend time outdoors.
