Still at the Shrine

 If you look back at the picture of the shrine building, you can see some small objects at the left side. When I went over to investigate. This is what I found. Usually this sort of display indicates that the shrine is for children who died either soon after or before birth.
Up under the eaves in the shrine roof, I found this picture which shows a warrior with a sword and bow leading a horse toward a building. From the writing on the frame, I believe that this is a god and probably the guardian deity of the shrine.

Note: Tomorrow I am competing in an all day Go tournament sponsored by the town. I've been told that there will be at least a hundred people there. I will post some pictures on Wednesday, if it is appropriate to take them.
