Stone Frogs?

 I noticed a stele on the other side of the stream, and after crossing on a little bridge, I discovered a sign next to it indicating that this was the direction to Takatsu Jinja, one of my goals for today.
 Along the way I found this little place. It is a regular home that has been converted into a meeting place for a local Shinto based sect.
I have no idea if they had any special significance but on both sides of the entrance there were little stone statues of frogs. Since this is still quite close to the stream, frogs may have a special meaning for this group.
