As I pedal or scoot to work I often try to take roads that I haven’t before. On this particular road that I have been taking recently I found this stone that is decked out in a straw rope, a kind of decoration usually associated with shrines and the like. There are six acorns set on the stone frame surrounding the base of the stone, very cute addition. I’d like to do a rubbing of it sometime. There is often something inscribed on these, but I couldn’t make out what was on this one.
