Dewa Sanzan Gallery

Yamagata Prefecture 

Here you’ll find a gallery featuring all the best spots in Yamagata, the spiritual hub of Japan.

The five-storied pagoda and stone stairway amongst the towering cedar trees of Mt. Haguro are an unmissable sight.

Said to be the border between this world and the next, Mt. Gassan represents the world of the afterlife.

The most sacred of the three Dewa Sanzan, the object of worship on Mt. Yudono is too mystical to describe.

Risshakuji is the name of the temple hanging off the edge of a cliff in Yamadera that is one of the most picturesque temples around. 

Training monks for over 1150 years, Zenpoji Temple is one of the best places for an escape.
