Still at Sakuta Jinja

 Over the lintel of the entrance to the building was an interesting piece of painted woodwork. To me, it looks quite a bit like rather abstract clouds, but I am not at all confident that that is what is represented. If you enlarge the picture, you can see that the pattern is repeated over the door to the altar. This is clearer in the next picture.
This door is the door to the altar where the local god resides. You can see the pattern clearly. The white sign above the door simply gives the name of the shrine. There are pictures around the top as is usual in a shrine.
