Stairway to ...heaven? They work both ways, you know.

These are stairs to a shrine that I have been wanting to visit for some time. I ride past them sometimes on the way to or from school. The other day I stopped for a little look about. It was a nice shrine, but not that old. The original seems to have been moved from its original site, a little over a kilometer away, to its present location during the Meiji Era, or about a hundred years ago. I'll include a photo of the original site, which is still commemorated by a plaque and a monument to the mountain god of the area.
