Another stroll around the neighborhood

 This stone represents a local Shinto god, I think. In any case, someone places flowers here and put the shimenawa around it. Some of the foundation extends out into the public property of the street but most of the base seems to be on private property.
 This is a very nice home. The silver object on the roof is a solar water heater. The energy from the sun is used to preheat the water so that it takes less energy that the family has to pay for.
The strips of colored tape are to keep the birds away.
