Goodbye Pollen Vacation at HOSHINOYA Taketomi Island

  • HOSHINOYA Taketomi Island

HOSHINOYA Taketomi Island, located on Taketomi Island, Okinawa, will offer the “Goodbye Pollen Vacation” from February 1st to May 31st, 2020. This is a three-day, two-night program where guests can go to Taketomi Island, where there are no cedar or hinoki trees, to be relieved from the stress caused by pollen and refresh themselves. They can forget about the troubles that come with spring every year, and enjoy picnics, afternoon naps in the sun, and stretching/deep breathing under the morning sun or the night sky.

Escape stress caused by pollen at Taketomi Island, where there are no cedar or hinoki trees. They say that the number of people with hay fever has been increasing in recent years, and in the survey on hay fever conducted in 2016 by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government, it was found that half of all people in the city suffered from hay fever. *1

However, there are no cedars or hinoki on Taketomi Island, as the tall trees are unable to withstand the
typhoons that occasionally hit the island. Visitors here can relax and take off the masks and glasses they use to relieve hay fever in the city. This program was developed out of the desire to let people enjoy leisure activities such as picnics and deep breathing that they normally can’t do in the springtime, relieve their stress caused by pollen, and help them to refresh themselves.
