The Real Japan

My life may be a little bit different to yours. I live in Yamagata Prefecture on the north-west coast of the northern part of Honshu in Japan, have done so since 2010. This place has everything you need; beaches for the summer and ski fields for the winter. This blog talks about what life is like here so that people can get an understanding of the real Japan, not just what goes on in Tokyo and Kyoto. But more importantly, this blog is about me.

俺の生活はおそらくあなたのと全然違います。2010年以降東北に位置する山形県の西海岸に在住中。ここって人生にすべての必要なのがある。夏は海で冬はスキー所。このブロッグは東京と京都意外の本当の日本を分かってくれるために書きます。でも最も大事なのは、このブロッグは俺についてです。

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.
