natural features. The Tohei Institute building is also surrounded by all

days.This magistrate mansion is the family home Koichi Tohei Sensei, and is
where this he established the world-famous methods of Ki Principles and
Ki-Aikido.Ki no Sato was opened adjacent to the mansion, making use of its
environs and lineage.
