Mt. Ubagatake

Make the chances, take the chances

This time last week I was coming back from Mt. Gassan. I found out earlier today that the mountain is now covered in snow to about 1400m, well below the height we would have been (didn’t reach the summit, but made it to Ubagatake, a lower peak).

I’m glad we could get there when we did. With Mt. Gassan it’s quite hard to predict exactly when the mountain will close, I’ve been up there in late October before. This year just appears to be earlier.

Let this be a reminder that you never know when chances to do things will be taken away from you. We’re all well aware of this with COVID, but it’s true. Make the chances, take the chances.

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.


Sign up to the weekly Mountains of Wisdom newsletter, follow me on social (Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, TikTok, Clubhouse, all @kiwiyamabushi), or send me an email via the link below to stay in touch.


Tim.
