|Rock Formations Inside of the Cave|
Friends and I took a quick road trip this afternoon to check out two shrines, one Buddhist and the other Shinto, located next to a cave. The cave is apparently holy ground and the two shrines were built there to honor and preserve the site. Tomorrow night there will be a New Year's festival at the site, but after getting caught out in a cold rain today, I am doubtful that I will venture to the celebration.
