When we tried it, we actually felt reborn!
Wake up in the morning, get ready for work, eat breakfast, take a packed train to work, come home, do housework…the daily grind sometimes feels like it never ends. When do we get time for ourselves?
Sometimes you just have to make it. That’s why our Japanese-language reporter Yuki Shirai went to check out a modern art building in the Nagoya neighborhood of Arimatsu in central Japan that has a cafe where you can meditate in the dark. It’s called the Konmasa Building, directed by modern artist KONMASA. The building includes a meditation cafe where you can sample different teas and sweets as you meditate, so it’s the perfect place to take some time to unwind.
The meditation cafe has two courses: the Finest Quality Houjicha Course and the Natural High-Quality Green Tea Course. Both courses cost 2,000 yen (US$17.32). The day Yuki went was pretty cold and she wanted something that could both warm her up and relax her, so she picked the Finest Quality Houjicha course…
