One reason to explore the mountains of Yamagata

The Autumn Leaves of Mount Taizo

Mountains in Japan have a very different meaning to that of New Zealand. Well, I’m sure there are a lot of similarities with mountains in Maori culture, but the mountains of Yamagata have been used to sustain life in the area for centuries.

People go into the mountains for completely different reasons, and they come out with different perspectives as well. It’s great to find out what those perspectives are for different people, as it helps you appreciate things on a deep level.

Just one thing I’ve noticed doing the 100 famous mountains of Yamagata project.
