Koyasan (高野山) in the rain

Taking shelter @ 高野山

I got off at the wrong bus stop (Okunoin-mae or 奥の院前) on Koyasan. Turns out that was a good thing as 30 seconds later the skies went crazy, and I would have been stuck in a 20-minute downpour with nothing but the trees to take cover under had I gotten off at Ichinohashiguchi (一の橋口).

The thunder I heard, just after taking this photo, was like nothing I have ever heard before. The sound seemed to originate from just a few feet away rather than the normal, somewhat distant sound.
