Planetarium wants you to relax by simulating the forest and night sky

Forget the spa, if you want to relax and unwind, head on over to the planetarium.

The Konica Minolta Planetarium in Tokyo is no longer just a place to learn about space, it’s also now a venue where you can chill and liberate your senses. Reopened in 2015, the planetarium now offers a program called ‘Star Night Healing’, wherein visitors can sit back and experience Japan’s UNESCO world heritage Yakushima forest.

The 50-minute long event features a voice actor narrating your journey through the mesmerising Japanese countryside and starry night sky. It comes with reclining seats and a grassy lawn where you can lie down, as well as essential healing oils taken from Yakushima forest itself.

Think of it as a spa session, but done with Studio Ghibli visual effects.
