Experience rebirth among Japan’s sacred mountains.
In the mountains of Yamagata Prefecture, Yamabushi mountain ascetics have been training and making pilgrimages among the sacred peaks of the Dewasanzan for over 1,000 years. Pilgrimages which they believe lead to a kind of rebirth.
On one of these mountains, Mt. Haguro, join the Yamabushi for a climb up an ancient stone stairway, among centuries old towering cedars, to a revered shrine.
