One of the less accessible historical tombs of Talmudic Sages is that of Rabbi Yose of Yokerat.

It lies between Zefat and Meron, on the side of the road and up a hill.

The Talmud describes this Sage as one who was so concerned with anything which might be considered as a disturbance to G-d that as a result he brought about the early death of a son and daughter who are buried nearby.
