Hase Village in Nagano Prefecture has been known as having a distinct
magnetic field which has a positive influence on the human body in both mental and physical functions. This research looks for proof of the influence using AP parameter, BP parameter, anxiety survey, electromyograms, and alphawave measurements. Total of 30 people including students living in Tokyo and a nearby suburban area were
brought to Hase Village to stay 3 to 5 days and the difference between the measurement result in Tokyo and Hase village were compared. With all the results except alphawave measurements, a positive influence were seen in Hase Village.
