Starting a new walk

I can't really read the characters on the stele but I think they give the name of a god, or a historical person who is treated as a god. The building on the foundation behind the stele is a Shinto shrine so I suspect that this person is related to the shrine in some way.
This is a closeup of the bottom right of the stele. I suspect that the figure on this small stele is the god referred to on the main inscription. Also, note that this is a living shrine as someone has put fresh flowers and some offerings at the base of each stelae.
