Unique culture

There are some aspects of Japanese culture that don’t cross over to other cultures. One easy example would be Reiwa, the new age we entered this year. This sort of information you need to have before conducting any business here, but when you’re not in that location it can be hard to come by. If you’re aiming to do business with another group of people, it may help to actually live with them at least for a short while. If you don’t, you don’t stand much chance of success there.

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.
