About this trip

Practice yoga and meditation and explore the quiet historic country town of Asuka, the first ancient capital of Japan with Eriko. You will visit Japan at a perfect time of year, as the weather has cooled and trees start to change colors into many shades of gold, red, and green. A great time to enjoy autumn harvest and indulge in healthy local Japanese food.



You will be staying at a "minshuku", traditional Japanese accommodation in a quiet historic country town of Asuka (the first ancient capital of Japan). This accommodation is located about one kilometer from Asuka Station and about 15 minutes on foot.

On the way, you proceed with Kitora Tumulus, Takamatsuzuka Tumulus, Oni Yakugaku, and Oni no Uta, an old house around 250 years old. From the room, you can see the Mabuchi Dainai tomb of Tenmu and Motochi. The room is simple with a very relaxing futon bed. Superb Japanese traditional style 'onsen' on the premises. They have a great banquet center and nearby restaurants.



Eriko invites you to join her for this unique experience, where she will share her love of yoga asanas, meditation and breathwork combined with her cultural heritage, Japan. Allow yourself to fall in love with Japan as you surrender to the rich culture, world-class hospitality, unique cuisine, and traditional wellness.

Eriko is born and bred in Japan, a fusion of east and west, currently residing in Sydney, Australia. Her yoga journey started in 2008, love at first sight and passion still strong to date, now sharing it to many people through studio classes, corporate classes and private sessions in Sydney.

Eriko is a fun-loving, caring and reliable yoga teacher with great hands-on assists with precise alignment suggestions however the flavor of the practice is (Yin or Yang). She loves Acroyoga, a form of yoga done by two or more people with acrobatic components, for fun and play and have strong interest in health and wellness (surprise!) and self-development, mainly through Buddhist and Advaita Vedanta teachings.
