    Kahaluu Gallery and Gardens
    Stop: 2 hours - Admission included
    You will be guided on a mindful walk through the gardens and forested switchback in the peaceful setting created by the late Hawai'i artist Hiroshi Tagami. Your certified forest therapy guide will offer a series of “invitations” to help you re-connect with nature through your senses. You'll get to try a tea from the forest and a healthy, locally-sourced snack. Forest therapy is an evidence-based practice inspired by the Japanese "shinrin-yoku" (roughly translates to "forest bathing"), now a global wellness movement. After the two-hour forest bathing walk, you'll get exclusive access to the art gallery, which contains paintings and giclees by Tagami, sculptures and ceramics, jewelry, and photographs by other local artists.
