心を遠くへ。

那智勝浦町

scroll

On the other side of the mountains
On the other side of the sea
Even far over in the sky

Peace awaits us.
Distant from day to day business
Distant from everyday life

The further we travel
The freer our soul becomes

Far from the rhythms of the cities
Ancient nature surrounds our soul
Our mind comes to peace and our senses awoken

From ancient mythology to universe
Our heart travels through past and future to come

Let your heart travel to, and your soul be free in Nachi-Katsuura
