Mishap on Mt. Kumanonagamine

Today I don’t have a traditional blog post for you because I’ve been busy writing about today’s mishap on Mt. Kumanonagamine while it was still fresh in my head.

We learned so much just by climbing this humble peak, the completely wrong way mind you, and we were saved by the kindness of strangers who were even kind enough to give us bananas and coke. I’m not sure that’s the right way to reinforce mistakes, but I’ll take it.

Next time I won’t trust Google maps, and I’ll make sure to triple check I have the right spot 🙂 even though they have been completely wrong on the Yamagatayama website that I’m basing this off.

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.
