Heading south

 This little shrine is apparently maintained by the trucking company, probably asking the god to prevent accidents.
 A very picturesque stele beside the road.
Crossing a bridge, I found koinobori, fish shaped banners, flying (swimming?) from ropes stretched across a small river. Koinobori are usually hung up for a week or more during the period around Children's Day, May 5th.
