The Emperor’s enthronement ceremony

Today we had the emperor’s enthronement ceremony. You might be aware, but Japanese ceremonies such as this are quite slow, and to be honest, boring. The enthronement ceremony was much the same, but it was cool seeing all the decorations and things. Japan has some pretty cool old school designs.

Well, we watched it on TV, and I was surprised that of the 6 channels we have, 5 of them were showing it. You may be surprised at how few channels there are, I think it’s a ploy to control what people watch, but i guess they just really wanted people to watch it. Well, it’s probably worth it since we got the day 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.
