The Path to Hachimangu

 The path up the side of the hill was very unusual for an entry to a shrine. For a ways, there were houses on both sides and the fence kept people out, or maybe in.
 The stairs were typical in that they consisted of a log with two stakes driven into the ground at the end and then the space behind the log filled with dirt. These are easy to make and the materials are always at hand.
The final stairs to the shrine building, however, were stone, but not in very good shape.
