Learning the ancient ways of the indigenous Matagi people and experiencing their profound spiritual relationship with nature. Basing yourself in a wonderful, remote lodge for two-nights, Oriyama-san will take you out trekking in the mountains and valleys for the day, where its natural bounty is revealed. Dining will be a cornerstone of your experience, be it surrounding a bonfire out in the wilderness or feasting on Matagi staples such as ‘Kiritampo-nabe’, or more adventurous local game, back at the lodge. This is an experience for those interested in exploring Japan's natural world and culture on a deeper level than most, learning from 13,000 years of Matagi life in this region, and in sharing their environment in both gratitude and respect. The Northern Wilderness Immersion includes two-nights’ accommodation in a remote, luxury lodge, entry to a private outdoor onsen, all meals for the duration of your stay and a full day in the wilderness with Oriyama-san and an interpreter.
