Leaving Ten Jinja

 The two white objects at the base of the cliff (that I showed yesterday) turned out to be vases of flowers in front of a small statue. The flowers were not new, but had not yet completely wilted.
 Beside the stairs leading to the street level, there was a stele with a shimenawa. In front of it were two boxes with flowers and some ritual objects. The flowers were very unusual. This was the first time I have seen flowers growing in boxes, rather than fresh cut flowers.
Back down on the street level, I could see the shrine through the blossoms.
