Dewa Sanzan, YAMAGATA

Spirituality and Gastronomy in Yamagata

Mt. Haguro, Mt. Gassan, and Mt. Yudono, collectively known as the Dewa Sanzan, hold a sacred mountain faith that mixes nature worship with esoteric Buddhist beliefs. Ascend the stone steps of Mt. Haguro with a yamabushi mountain priest, embarking on a journey of enlightenment. After receiving a special blessing at the mountaintop temple, a local restaurateur will guide you through the secrets of mountain foraging and local cuisine using these naturally grown ingredients. For a deeper understanding of the yamabushi culture and their unique views on nature and spirituality, visit the Ideha Cultural Museum at the foothills of Dewa Sanzan. This experience was curated in collaboration with the Japan's Agency for Cultural Affairs and inspired by the Japan Heritage Story #020 “Dewa Sanzan: A Journey to Rebirth."
