Randiah Camille Green is a writer living in Tokyo, and enthusiast for offbeat travel and spooky things. Thanks to The Hidden Japan, I had a chance to film Randiah trying Yamabushi mountain monk experience in Dewa Sanzan, the oldest site of mountain worship in Japan.

Please read her article on GaijinPot Blog: Voyaging Towards Introspection with the Yamabushi Mountain Monks.

And please enjoy the video we shot!
