    Mr. Nyoichi Sakurazawa is known as the founder of macrobiotics.Many people may know about cooking, but Mr. Sakurazawa's essence lies in his theorems and rules for living a healthy and happy life.In today's society, which is riddled with problems such as environmental pollution, economic stagnation, war, the spread of disease, and hunger, there are hints of true happiness and salvation for humanity in traditional medicine and philosophical ideas that have been passed down from ancient times in the East. .We will learn about the principles of Eastern medicine and thought (the order of the universe) from the many books left behind, reread them, and examine what kind of world Mr. Sakurazawa truly aspired to be.
    Each course is a great value course where you can practice treatment methods using familiar foods.
