On the tenth and final day of my walk along the last leg of the Saigoku 33 Kannon Pilgrimage I reached the last temple, Kegon-ji in Gifu Prefecture.
Once the morning fog had burnt off the day had been sunny with clear blue skies. As I approached the temple the road was lined with maples and there were crowds of people.
In all respects the temple did not disappoint. Plenty of autumn display and plenty of statuary.
As I left there was a brilliant splash of color as a shaft of sun illuminated some maple just in front of the temples main gate. As I waited for the bus it began to cloud over. It rained for the next 24 hours.
