 I was walking along a stream that had a very nice little park next to it. According to my map the stream was called Sakudaunade. I later found out that this is the only place name that has been in continuous use in referring to the same place since the Kojiki, the oldest history of Japan, was written in 712 BCE. The stream has had work done on it at various times over at least the last 2500 years.
 This stele was in the middle of a large rice paddy and I could not see a way to get to it, maybe there was one from the other side, so I did not walk over to it.
This covered bench was part of the park. It was very pleasant with a good view up and down the stream. I stopped here and ate the lunch that I had brought with me.
