As is often true after I travel, I didn't do much today. Here's more from the shrine in Osaka. I have no idea what the purpose of these stones is, but they look neat. maybe it's the style of the stone that I like so much. It's amazingly photogenic and old-looking. The ones in Tokyo never seem to photograph so well. Maybe it's an age thing.
Edit: I've been told that these are the donors who funded construction.
