Promoting good health across generations. “Kyoto walking trip with family and friends”
MIMARU Wellness & Ageless Tourism Promotion Project
Cosmos Hotel Management Co., Ltd., which operates APARTMENT HOTEL MIMARU, a spacious guest room equipped with a kitchen where you can stay together with your family and friends. A walking trip in Kyoto @ MIMARU SUITES Kyoto CENTRAL” was held for three days and two nights. People in their 20s to 90s, including married couples and daughters, families with small children, company friend groups, and the Kimiko family, who were selected through public offering, participated. While learning tips on how to walk with the correct posture and beautiful poses for photography from a walking professional, participants experienced a trip that was fun and healthy. We were able to rediscover the charms of Kyoto through early morning walking, off-the-beaten-track courses, and a “shifting trip” such as enjoying the rain.

The “wellness tourism” proposed by MIMARU is to enjoy the history and culture of the travel destination and meet people while walking steadily and becoming energized. The curiosity and stimulation of travel will be the vitality of tomorrow. And “ageless tourism” means enjoying travel no matter how old you are in the age of 100 years of life. Traveling and interacting with family and like-minded friends is a joyful and irreplaceable time for all generations. In this “Kyoto Walking Trip”, Mr. KIMIKO’s humorous walking lessons and explanations of recommended spots made us smile while walking, and we received comments such as “It was fun” and “I got power” from people of all generations. I was. After walking, return to the 85m2 2-bedroom “MIMARU SUITES KYOTO CENTRAL” where you can relax in the spacious living room, have dinner in your room, or soothe your tired feet in the bathroom. was MIMARU will continue to deepen its proposals for futuristic tourism through these activities.
MIMARU is advocating “wellness tourism” and “ageless tourism” as futuristic tourism in 2023. Reference:
Posture walking lesson by KIMIKO in the morning

Everyone who participated was excited about the new learning experience. They were surprised by the difference in their own postures before and after the lesson, confirmed how to walk with each other, and prepared to walk beautifully. The forecast for Kyoto that day was light rain in the afternoon, so I learned how to walk without splashing water on rainy days.
For walking, enjoy a “shifting trip” on an original course that is slightly different from the standard.

Instead of the bustling West Romon, I chose the South Romon, which is actually the main gate. After purifying yourself with sacred water, head east, climb up Maruyama Park, and visit the quiet Yoshimizu Benzaiten-do. This course, which leads to Chion-in Temple’s famous New Year’s bell, has few tourists. On the way, it’s shooting time with a lesson on beautiful photo poses. The sight of the 90-year-old grandmother walking with a smile from beginning to end, being led by her grandchildren, seemed to cheer everyone up. During lunchtime, questions were thrown around and the mood was relaxed from beginning to end.
Wake up early on the final day and walk early in the morning to the Kyoto Imperial Palace

A walk in the quiet morning with few people coming and going and the air clear was exceptional. I experienced Kyoto, which is beautiful even in the rain, with fresh green trees bathed in the blessings of rain. We stopped at Nashinoki Shrine, which was recommended by the front desk staff, and drank water from the chozuya, one of the three famous waters of Kyoto, on our way home. It is recommended that you can avoid the crowds and make great discoveries just by changing the time, place, and activities of your trip.
