On the hillside behind  Jodō-ji, I discovered this very long staircase heading straight up the hillside. Unable to resist the lure, I made a side trip off the pilgrimage route and climbed the steps.

At the top was this lovely Shinto shrine known as Hio-hachiman-jinja. No one else was there, so I had the place to myself.
