The biggest wood structure in Japan
April 21, 2015
Approximately one and a half hours north of Tokyo, in Nasu, lies the largest wood structure in the whole of Japan. VEDA NO MORI (“Forest of Veda”) is the national headquarters of the Transcendental Meditation organization in the country.
The magnificent building of 4,800 sm (51,500 sf) has a timbre frame and a striking copper roof, a typical feature of the local architecture.
The center offers residential courses to those already practicing the Transcendental Meditation technique, as well as the opportunity to learn TM in this serene setting.
With its 56 guest rooms and eight conference/classrooms, the building also serves as a clinic for Maharishi Ayurveda treatments and consultations.
