Shinrin yoku

The phenomenon of "forest bathing" (Japanese shinrin-yoku, 森林 浴) has become internationally known from Japan since the 1980s. It describes the meditative experience and the health effects of a stay in the forest. Japanese scientists in particular have looked at changes in the immune system caused by forest habitat and measured an increased activity of natural killer cells .
