Awe" is a term in Japanese that means "a feeling of reverence." It represents the resonance of a soul that is overwhelmed and filled with awe in the presence of the vastness of nature. The word "Awe" (オウ) originates from the sound emitted when one involuntarily holds their breath in amazement.
The sources of awe can be found in various aspects of nature,
such as the beautiful coral reefs that provide habitats for diverse organisms, or the enchanting mysteries of the countless sparkling stars in the night sky.
By experiencing awe, people can discover their small selves connected to the vastness of nature.
At Eco Guide Cafe, we offer an Awe Vacation that allows your heart to tremble with the vibrant and diverse landscapes woven by the nature of Miyako Island, as well as the grand formations and mysteries of small creatures. Through various activities, we aim to cultivate a sense of belonging to the environment, based on the Awe experienced in Miyako Island, and hope to nurture an awareness of being a part of nature, even in our small existence.
We hope that our post-travel "Awe Everyday Experience" and "SDGs Lifestyle" can serve as a catalyst.
