The mountain guide Tomio Saeki (1929–1990) worked in the Tateyama mountain range and served as a member of the first Japanese Antarctic wintering party in 1957. He was regarded as a man with outstanding senses who could predict the arrival of a storm by feeling the dryness of the wind or accurately locating his belongings buried under the snow after a blizzard. This paper explores the intuitions of mountain guides such as Saeki from an embodiment perspective. With regards to a guide's bodily awareness, which results in a superior understanding of a situation as illustrated in the above example, the paper describes the guides' consciousness of the wind through Tim Ingold's weather-world concept. Similarly, mountain guides' bodily sensations are explored by using Eugene Gendlin's concepts of "felt sense", "eveving" and "focaling," as well as Arakawa and Madeline Gins's concept of "landing sites". Finally, the issue of a body's habituation is explored in terms of the significance of the education of attention process. In conclusion, it was shown that the embodiment of mountain guides and their view of Arakawa's perspective of the nature are of great importance in discussing the acquisition of intuition.
