Surrounded by the nature of a snowy country… “Tamugi Nobuna no Mori x Digital Detox Experience Session” held in Joetsu City
*Date: July 7, 2024*

Digital detox refers to reducing stress on the mind and body by distancing yourself from digital devices such as smartphones and computers for a certain period of time and limiting their use, while focusing on direct communication in the real world and connection with nature. This is an initiative.
From the Japan Digital Detox Association official website “What is digital detox?”

On the day of the event, we moved to the beech forest at the former campsite, where we talked about digital detox, and then had each person put their smartphones in the envelopes we had prepared for them (sealed with their own will and hands! Of course) We will not force you to participate) We will start a trial session.

Let’s start by not thinking about your smartphone for even a few hours! Of course, I just want to enjoy the beech forest, regardless of digital detox! You are also very welcome.

Guide: Mitsunori Ushida (Rice Farmer + Farm Inn Ushidaya)

We, the Satoyama Innovation Study Group, aim to find new value in local satoyama resources such as beech forests and create new ways to utilize them.
We started activities in 2020 with this goal.
Coinciding with the coronavirus pandemic, which began at the same time, digital devices such as smartphones and tablets have become more familiar and closely connected to our lives.
now. However, how often do we learn about or think about how to interact effectively with digital devices?
My friends and I are still learning about digital detox, but we are planning a series of projects to think about it together with you and to focus on the beauty of the Satoyama that surrounds us.
I hope this gives you an opportunity to receive it.
We will be posting information about future initiatives and events on the newly established website below.
It’s a schedule. At the same time, we are also looking for people who want to become advisors. If you are interested, please take a look.
