Two roadside shrines

 One of the things that I have noticed since moving to Fukuoka is that there are a lot of buildings with strange shapes and strange colors. The sign on this rather garish building says that it is a prep school, a place where students study for exams to the next higher level of schooling.
 Beside the sidewalk, I found this little shrine. I could not see what was in it because of the cloth covering the object. However, it is obviously frequented because someone left the fresh flowers.
A little farther along, I found this larger and better constructed shrine. It was too dark inside to see anything other than the offerings box and a couple of vases of flowers.
