Undiscovered Country Hike

Come with me and discover what lies hidden at the end of an old abandoned farm tram in the lush, green mountains of central Japan. This area is on the flanks of holy Mt. Ryuso which has long been a sacred place in both the Buddhist and Shinto traditions. Ascetic priests once wandered these same forests seeking enlightenment and pilgrims today continue climbing to the top. It’s a magical land to me, full of hidden beauty which I have only recently begun to explore in earnest. I hope to have many chances to learn more about what is hidden beyond those thick curtains of green.

This video is a follow-up to another hike video titled “Nameless Waterfall Hike” included below.
