Tokyo, Japan 


Destination nº4.

In one of the world’s largest and most technologically advanced city we met Master Hiruyoki Aoki, founder of the Shintaido practice.
A Master in action who develops new techniques and practices based on traditional/atemporal wisdom and who focuses on energy.

Aoki Hiroyuki is 82 years old and lives between Tokyo and Yokohama. Through the rigorous practice of Kenbu Tenshin Ryu, a martial art he developed, master Aoki is connected with nature in total harmony. He allows each one of his students to develop a direct bond with nature and the universe, feeling the interconnectivity between us all, and allowing everyone to find their true self. Bringing the spiritual back to the physical, he opens a gateway to a timeless place where the body becomes a temple of life. Master Aoki has made the conscious choice of creating balance and harmony within urban spaces and its inhabitants.
