The Toyoko Inn was originally inspired by the $40 to $50 per night hotels popular in the United States. With the many privileges of our Toyoko Inn Club member system, we aim to be a familiar face offering a comfortable stay, reasonable prices and convenient services.
The number of people carrying many worries in our modern society is increasing. The kinds of worries are various, and the ways to solve them numerous. Toyoko Inn promotes a way to address such worries with its naikan (introspection) method.
The naikan method works by concentrating your mind in a quiet environment where you take the time to reflect upon your past, allowing you to look objectively at your current situation. It is an effective method for those looking for more purpose in their lives.
Toyoko Inn established the Naikan Institute to promote its naikan meditation method, which has been successfully used by many people. The current institute, the Toyoko Inn Hakone National Park Naikan Institute, is located among the green mountains of Hakone at Sengokuhara.
There are two types of naikan meditation programs, one for regular training and one for intensive training, with a core focus on the 8-day, 7-night intensive program. A major appeal of the Naikan Institute is natural surroundings and natural hot springs, and is as bright and attractive as the many company recreation facilities that are also common in Hakone.
We highly recommend that you try the Naikan Institute in Sengokuhara as a way to clear your heart regardless of whether or not you have particular worries.
