Four Seasons Tokyo at Chinzan-so, 2011 Spa Tour

Presiding over the Chinzan so gardens!

Sculptural ornament can add a Japanese vibe to any garden - like this one in Chanzan-so

Love how the pool glows!

Our second #JapanLife destination on our 2011 Spa Tour is the Four Seasons Tokyo, Chinzan-so.  This escape is set in the middle of bustling Tokyo yet tucked into the Chinzan-so gardens- also known as Camelia mountain – doesn’t that sound gorgeous?







The pool is right off the gym – with a retractable roof – it’s a lovely dessert to look at as you workout!

And how about this for an escape eruption?  Their Yu Spa boasts Tokyo’s only onsen with Izu mineral water (pure volcanic water from the island of Izu!)

Peeking into the Yu spa through the slate lined hall - it's light beckons!

The view from inside! Loving the design of this subterranean relaxation nook. Steps go down to a built in settee surrounded with artwork!

SpaHome It!:  If you’re creating your own snuggly spot at home, but don’t have “built-in” accommodations like at the Chinzan-so,  flank a bench or chaise with two small tables topped will tall urns or sculptures – instant cozy!

A floral centerpiece to your feast in the mediterranean dining room!

Who cares about eating when you can lounge in this grand space!

Finish the day with Yu Spa’s signature indulgence which decongests, stimulates and boost your body’s systems. Vichy water therapy combined with a full-body exfoliation invigorates and deeply cleanses.  Then you are wrapped in aromatic cloths on the luxurious Java Indonesian bed in the private Yusui Suite. THEN, an anti-ageing Elemis tri-enzyme resurfacing facial to help instantly resurface and smooth the skin.  Wow!

Stay Tuned. . . .later this week we’ll:

Concoct DIY versions of Chinzan-so’s Sake Clay Coccoon & Black Sesame Body Rituals

Reveal the spa’s “seasonal” approach to essential oils

Sound good?  See you then,

Live, Love and Lounge, Candy
