A Buddha, a woodpile, and a private altar

 Still at Site 17, I took one last picture of the central figure which may or may not be a Buddha.
 This is a very unusual sight in Japan, a covered all-weather woodpile. I could not tell whether they heated with wood or had some other use for it, a pottery kiln, for example.
This was just inside the grounds around a private home. Inside the small shrine there appeared to be a stone. I was tempted to enter the yard and look closely at it, but considering that it was a private home, I restrained myself.
