Float your way to rejuvenation & restoration in Hokkaido's first ever Float Tank
Imagine floating into the start of your holiday more calm, collected and relaxed than ever before. Well, that dream may be closer to reality than you think!
Located on the first floor of Skye Niseko, Ryko Spa is home to Hokkaido's first ever float tank. This is where you can experience a level of relaxation and weightlessness like never before.
So, what exactly is a float tank we hear you ask?
It's a lightless, soundless tank filled with local spring water from the nearby surrounding mountain area and mineral salts heated to skin temperature. This allows you to float and experience a sense of weightlessness and peace. This is the closest you can get to a zero gravity feeling without venturing into space.
The float tank experience offers a variety of benefits, including:
Deep relaxation that can help relieve physical pain, inflammation, and stress on the body or immune system.
Floating can be utilised to reset the body and strengthen resistance to and from the effects of strenuous exercise, like days of non-stop skiing and snowboarding.
Additionally, the ultra-deep relaxation of floating can be a powerful way to combat stress and anxiety, as the absence of external stimuli often allows your brain to sort things out on its own.
Floating in peace can help you tap into your subconscious and access your creative ideas, leading to a heightened sense of awareness and creativity after your session.
Sleep improvement. Many floaters fall asleep during their float session and experience levels of extreme relaxation. Some doctors even suggest that one hour of sleep in a float tank is equivalent to four to eight hours of deep sleep.
Athletes of all abilities can also benefit from floating, as it improves vasodilation, allowing your body to flush out lactic acid more quickly and reduce soreness, pain, and stiffness.
So, why not treat yourself on your winter getaway to a float tank experience at Ryko Spa? See what you will experience from it.
A float is different for everyone, but if you are open to the experience, you'll be sure to leave feeling more calm, collected, and relaxed and recharged, ready to tackle another day of activities, on or off the slopes.

"The experience was so calming, I could barely tell I was in a tank!"
"I had my first float tank experience at Ryko Spa recently, and it was awesome! The staff were all very friendly, and explained everything I needed to know about floating very precisely before I started. I’m not going to lie, the first few minutes were quite a strange sensation, but after I relaxed into the idea - the experience was so calming, I could barely tell I was in a tank! I highly recommend everyone to give floating a chance at least once, and do so at Ryko Spa" - Kate M.
"I felt like I was floating in the universe"
"I am not a big fan of water, so I was initially hesitant to try this treatment. However, upon learning that this was Hokkaido's first float tank and that the experience was unlike anything I had ever encountered before, my curiosity outweighed my apprehension.
At first, I was quite nervous and my muscles were tense, but as I concentrated on relaxing, I could feel them loosening. With the soothing music playing during the session, I felt like I was floating in the universe! It was a very tranquil, and calming experience." - Yuko M.
"The incredible feeling of lightness lingers"
"The staff prepared everything from towels, goggles to earplugs. Although covering the ears and eyes are optional, for me they really helped with the experience. It took a while before I could fully get into it, but once I committed, the sensation was exceptional. I felt like drifting through space, weightless, which I have never felt before.
The ambient music and lighting inside the tank also help enhance the experience. After a shower and hot tea, that feeling of lightness in my body still lingers for a while. Very interesting." - Huy P.
