Besides trainings, you will explore all the islands to reveal its secrets. Find inner peace and recharge your batteries contemplating a peaceful environment where nature and technology live in harmony. Through challenges involving reflection, action, agility and music, prove yourself worthy and eat your way up in leaderboards among the other gakusei.
