Due to religious tradition, entering the area of Mt. Omine is restricted to men only. For groups that are mixed gender (or those who prefer not to ascend Mt. Omine), we also offer a Shugendo tour of the neighboring Mt. Inamuragatake, which is known as the “women’s Mt. Omine.” Mt. Inamuragatake is considered an official mountain dojo for shugendo ascetic training by Tenkawa Village’s Ryusen-ji Temple and all genders are permitted to climb it. That tour is listed here: ( https://nara-sightseeing.com/itinerary/13537/ )
This experience gives you the chance to immerse yourself into a genuine Shugendo landscape in the mountains where the faith was established over 1,300 years ago. Stay the night in Tenkawa Village, a hidden gem featuring natural hot springs and traditional Japanese ryokan.
Though it’s a three day “tour,” this is actually not intended to be a standard sightseeing experience . You will be visiting a sacred area for Shugendo practitioners and have real Shugendo experiences with a sendachi guide. This is not just a hike up a sacred Shugendo mountain, but a rare chance to experience the rituals and ascetic training which have been an integral part of Shugendo practices for centuries. Discover the essence of Japanese faith in the pristine nature of Nara’s southern mountains.
