The hill top shrine


At the top of the hill was a strong looking concrete building that served as a shelter on the first floor and on the second floor it housed a shrine. Shrine's are often found on the top of Japanese mountains and on Mt Kakuda there was a rather old wire rope way near the bottom that was built for the purpose of getting building supplies up to the summit. According to the old photos and information located in the building the shine was home to a priest & 3 other people long ago. Pictured above is Kakuda's shrine
