Make time for self-reflection in places removed from the digital world

Hoshino Resorts has launched a digital detox program at five of its HOSHINOYA branded hotels in Kyoto, Tokyo, Fuji, Taketomi Island and Karuizawa.

Since 2014, Hoshino Resorts has expanded the concept of the digital detox stay with the goal of reducing stress and mental fatigue caused by digital devices such as smartphones and computers.

Now available all year round, the program enables guests to refresh their mind and body through specially curated activities that foster a deeper connection with nature and local culture.

To benefit from the program, guests are requested to hand in their digital devices upon check-in. Depending on the HOSHINOYA branch, guests can immerse themselves in culturally rich activities whether its learning swordsmanship from a master in Tokyo, fishing in a traditional wooden boat in Taketomi Island, or learning about Mount Fuji’s history of worship.
