Its vision is to ‘ be recognised and loved globally for creating immersive hot springs experiences that are inspired by nature and respect all cultures’.  It aims to help visitors ‘Relax in nature and connect with the deep well of their being.’

Before entering the tourism industry in 1997 Charles spent 11 years in corporate life in the international trade of food including a total of five years in Tokyo.
