    More photos from Koyasan.

    Unfortunately I didn’t take any photos during the typhoon, which I kind of regret.  After the rain passed the mountain because shrouded in an incredibly thick mist that gave the place a really mystic feel, like something out of Princess Mononoke.  Koyasan was a beautiful place, but it was also lonely and I admit that after the first day I was wondering what I was doing there.  The ancient cedar trees, although stunning, felt almost like a barricade holding all that entered Koyasan inside.
