Jiroku Shrine

 This is the view from the top of the stairs. The gate, I guess you could call it, consists of two stone uprights and a wooden crossbar decorated with a straw rope. Just beyond the gate is a pair of stone lanterns, one on each side of the path, that are about one and a half meters tall. After the lanterns come a pair of lion statues to protect the shrine.
This is one of the lions.
