Over View

Katayama-san, our guide, currently lives half as the owner of a guesthouse and half as an “ascetic of Shugendo.
Mt. Yoshino is known as one of the best cherry blossom viewing spots in Japan, but you can also enjoy different sceneries in spring, summer, autumn, and winter. We have created a two-hour guided tour course to experience the history and culture of Mt. Yoshino and the world of Shugendo. Mt. Yoshino is a mountain where mountain worship, known as Shugendo, is still in practice.
Please join us and sharpen your senses to feel the world of Shugendo from the soles of your feet!


This plan will satisfy those who are new to Yoshinoyama, those who want to experience the history and nature with all their senses, and those who are interested in learning.
