Dewa Sanzan's Journey for Rebirth 出羽三山の生まれかわりの旅

Dewa Sanzan, one of the Three Main Sacred Sites of Shugendo in Japan (日本三大修験道), has been existing for more than 1400 years.
The Dewa Sanzan Yamabushi practice has been ongoing for all those centuries without discontinuing. 
Everybody is accepted and invited to learn about the essence of Dewa Sanzan's Yamabushi way of thinking: the "uketamo" (ウケタモウ), literally: "I accept". 
Accomplishing the pilgrimage of the Three Sacred Mountains of Dewa : Mt. Haguro, Mt. Gassan and Mt. Yudono is said to make the pilgrim access "spiritual rebirth".
