Det skal I lave
We will begin our experience at the base of Mt. Haguro at the Zuishimon Gate. This mountain has been the site of worship for the Yamabushi Mountain Monks ever since this mountain was first opened in the late 6th Century A.D. In the ancient mountain worship religion of Shugendo, Mt. Haguro represents the world of early desires and a place to separate yourself from the real world and discover inner peace. We will then begin our hike on the winding stone trail through the towering cedar forests and climb the 2,445 steps up the mountain. Along the way we will stop at historical landmarks including the Zuishimon Gate, Five Story Pagoda, and Sanjin Gosaiden Temple at the top of the mountain. Along the way, I would love to tell you about the rich history of this mountain and the Journey of Rebirth on the Three Sacred Mountains of Dewa. Arriving at the top, we will tour the sprawling complex of the Sanjin Gosaiden Shrine. We will then have lunch in a temple restaurant in the middle of the forest where we will enjoy Shojin Ryori, the traditional cuisine of the Yamabushi. We will then return down the mountain and I would be happy to guide you to your place of lodging. (I would also be happy to help you find and book a place.)
I am the co-founder of The Hidden Japan, a promotional company here in Yamagata that is dedicated to putting the countryside charm of the Tohoku Region on the map for international tourists visiting Japan. I have lived in Tokyo but was ultimately drawn to Northern Japan for the pristine nature, warmhearted communities, and truly genuine people here who have helped me make a life here in Sakata City. This tour may be co-led with another local host named Yuka Kato.

Her skal du være
We will explore the sacred cedar forest of Mt. Haguro. This location is a truly undiscovered gem of Japan that illustrates the beautiful harmony of the Japanese people and their love and respect for the sacred nature of this country. It is very rare to see foreign travelers in this region and we will have most of this mountain to ourselves.
