Shugendō (修験道) is a 1400+ year-old syncretic tradition of training and testing, characterised by meditative practice, mountaineering-asceticism and periodic retreats centered on ritual death & rebirth.

The Koshikidake Shugen (甑嶽山) sect's root temple, Kannon-ji (観音寺), is located in Yamagata prefecture, Japan.  This is the branch-site of a practitioner and practice/study group located in Meanjin (Brisbane, Australia). 

This site aims to assist in translating and making available information on Shugendō in general and to assist in translating practice material and commentaries for the school's internal use.
