Fighting Fires

When it comes to fighting fires, co-ordination is key. When a fire breaks out, if it’s small enough for the municipality to cover it, then that’s fine, let them do their thing. But when the fire gets a bit out of hand, back-up from other fire services is required.

I feel that the local tourism industry is a bit like an uncoordinated response to multiple fires (or in this case, serve international tourists). All these places working to put out small fires, without any regard for what the people around them are doing. We may not need a regional fire service, although it could help, but I feel co-ordination between local “fire” services could be much more beneficial in fighting “fires”.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hi, I’m Tim Bunting AKA the Kiwi Yamabushi, a New Zealander who became a Yamabushi Ascetic in the Dewa Sanzan mountains of north Japan. I’m part of the Yamabushido team, and we host life-altering Yamabushi training on the Dewa Sanzan (website link). People come to us for the ultimate mindfulness experience, to reach the next level, or simply connect with nature and themselves.


I’m on a mission to summit all 100 Famous Mountains of Yamagata Prefecture to spread the splendour of this fabulous location, and in dedication to all those who lost their lives out in nature, including my father.


On my daily blog I post thoughts of a practicing Yamabushi that I hope people can use to better themselves and live as fulfilling a life as possible.
