Sometimes taking a different route home can provide a wonderful reward. In fact, when my wife and I went home after shopping, we discovered 3 things: a cheap, but very good cake shop, a Chinese restaurant that has some very good food, and a shrine I never knew existed. They were all within steps of the main road that we’ve often used. This shrine surprised me because of how brightly coloured it was. It’s very small, and it seems to be connected to a family that owns several large houses in the neighbourhood. I previously posted a picture of the guardian fox of this shrine, which is an Inari shrine. Exploring sure does provide some wonderful surprises.
We’ll be doing more exploring as the weather gets a bit cooler. It’s still hot these days, but October and after should be great for taking pictures.
