Locating the shrine

 This tree was fantastic. The horizontal branch was longer than the tallest trunk was tall. It has obviously been trimmed and cut back many times over its long lifetime.
 I located the shrine at the end of a side road that ran passed an old building. You can just see the torii at the end of the road.
Getting nearer, I could see the shrine building behind the torii. The name of the shrine is Otogo, which means young girl. There must be a story behind this. If I ever find out what it is, I will come back and then post the story here. There are people trying to document the local history but I have not yet become involved with them.
