A Lone Yamabushi

A lone yamabushi observes the aftermath of the annual Shugendo goma, performed in the courtyard of the main Tendai temple, the KOMPON CHUDO on Mt. Hiei.  While the sacred bonfire (saito goma) still burns brightly, the crowd mills around, some looking for souvenirs from the fire offering ceremony.
