In addition, there are springs in the forest with nature and the forest where you can rest, so you can drink cool spring water.
Forest bathing is a natural health care method that allows you to breathe the fragrance (pironcide) in a dense green forest or touch it with your skin and bring peace of mind and body by harmonizing with fresh air, magical harmony, and beautiful scenery.
Phytoncide is a fragrance (sterilization, insecticidal) substance released to protect itself during plant growth.
Take a rest while walking in the forest, exercising appropriately, observing animals and plants, reading, watching videos, and poetry/sculptures.
Simple clothes that allow air circulation and sweat absorption are recommended.
Early summer-late autumn is good, when the trees grow vigorously.
Health promotion and disease prevention and treatment effect
It is effective to have forest bathing at 10 to 12 o'clock in the morning,
where there is a large amount of phytoncides. It is recommended to take a walk
and rest, or to exercise lightly, to breathe deeply, to build up physical strength,
and to stimulate each part of the body.
