Heading for a kofun

 My goal for this walk was a kofun, an old grave, that I found on a map. My route took me along a fairly main road. You will notice that it has no sidewalks, so I had to keep my eye on the traffic.
 This is the Kasuga Town branch of the Heaven Company. It is funeral service provided. They organize the ceremonies and the cremation the follow the death of someone. They are generally fairly pricey, even the Buddhist priest who officiate charge a large fee.
I turned off the main road and reach the kofun. It is the two mounds at the top of the stairs. The two trees are cherries so this place must be beautiful for a week or so in spring.
