At the upper level

The altar of the upper shrine was rather unusual. It had a candle stand and two miniature torii in front of a large stone. Although I could not see it very well, the stone looked suspiciously like a phallic symbol.
Walking around to the back of the shrine, I discovered a place with a good view of the rice paddies in the valley.
After I finished exploring and started for the stairs to continue on my walk, I noticed that the main shrine building had some plants growing on the roof. The first thought that came to my mind was that the building needed a haircut.
