where they don't know my name

Around and up through a small run of vermilion torii 鳥居 to Maruyama Inari Shrine 丸山稲荷社, where I chatted with another solo traveller, then down and across to the other side and Shirahata-Jinja Shrine 白旗神社, pictured here, hiding in the forest's edge.

After the third of the great torii 鳥居 leading to the shrine, the road opens on a large compound fronted by bridges and twin ponds. The park is dotted with structures, ending in a grand staircase that leads to the main shrine on the hill, backed by trees.
