Along the road

 Brick walls or any other sort of brick construction is quite unusual in Japan, so I was surprised by this long chest high wall. The reason that brick is seldom used is that brick structures are very weak and tend to collapse during earthquakes and all of Japan is subject to frequent tremors.
A little farther along the road, I came to this Shinto shrine. Apparently it is a private shrine. The greenery was fresh so someone is taking care of it. However, the little wooden building was empty.
