ZEN METAVERSE EXPERIENCE TOUR" FROM SEPTEMBER 14
Pasona Group Inc. ( Headquarters: Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo; Group Representative: Yasuyuki Nambu) has recreated Zen Buddhist retreat center Zenbo Seinei (Awaji City, Hyogo Prefecture), a facility that offers meditation and breathing exercises that incorporate elements of Zen and yoga to help people adjust to the spirit, in a metaverse space. The "ZEN Metaverse Experience Tour" will be held from September 14 (Wed.), allowing visitors to experience activities online from anywhere in the world.
IN THIS TOUR, VISITORS WILL BE ABLE TO ENTER THE "ZEN MONASTERY YASUNING," WHICH HAS BEEN RECREATED IN THE METAVERSE AS IF IT WERE REAL, USING THEIR OWN AVATAR, AND EXPERIENCE A ZAZEN RETREAT UNDER THE GUIDANCE OF AN INSTRUCTOR, AS WELL AS A RECEPTION FOR PARTICIPANTS. THE METAVERSE SPACE CAN BE CONNECTED FROM VARIOUS DEVICES INCLUDING PCS AND SMARTPHONES, AND THE USE OF VR GOGGLES AND EARPHONES ENHANCES THE IMMERSIVE EFFECT OF THE IMAGES AND SOUNDS FOR A MORE REALISTIC EXPERIENCE.
Through this initiative, Pasona Group will develop a new experiential online tourism service utilizing the metaverse space and promote regional development utilizing new technologies.
