To anyone still following this site, Ive stopped working on this blog a long time ago.
However I have since started up a new travel website for Yamagata Prefecture where I now live!
Please have a visit here.
We focus on revealing the hidden gems of the Japanese countryside and helping to make the rural regions of this country accessible to international visitors.
This includes work on the dewasanzan, The Three Sacred Mountains of Dewa and the Yamabushi Mountain Monks that worship there.
See some of the programs that I took part in and am working on making available for international tourists. https://www.thehiddenjapan.com/yamabushi
We currently have one Yamabushi training program available on Mt. Yudono but are working to develop more on the other two mountains of the dewasanzan.
