Arahito Jinja

 My first goal on this walk is the Arahito Jinja. There is another, larger shrine with the same name to the east of here. I assume that they are somehow connected. The other one is quite famous and has some important festivals. The name is interesting. Ara means emerging or becoming visible and hito means person, so this is the Shrine of the Emerging Person. The torii is visible at the end of the road.
 The shrine turned out to be quite small, adding to my guess that it is some sort of branch of the more famous shrine.
Standing at the front of the shrine with the bell rope on my left, I could see across the assembly floor and into the altar.
