A counterpart to the “West Ise Pilgrimage”from old times,visiting the Dewa Sanzan shrines is something to do once in your lifetime.This is a pilgrimage that symbolizes rebirth,where one enters first through Haguro-san,which symbolizes the present life,undergo training at Gassan that symbolizes death and rebirth,and is reborn at Yudonosan.The Japanese cedar-lined Omotesando path of Mt.Haguro was included in the Michelin Green Guide,earning 3 stars.
