One thing I like about small shrines or temples in the countryside Japan is how accessible they are. Contrary to the cities where Temples have their statues behind fences, most precious buildings behind gates and security guards watching you, the small shrines are often more accessible. Sometimes you can even ring those big century-old bells yourself, although you may not be supposed to! In some villages they use the bells to tell farmers about the lunch break, so try not to confuse those hard-workers! In this Temple on Shodoshima island, you can ring the bell as you make your way in and nobody will ever look at you like you did something wrong, then on the highest ground near the pagoda, just enjoy the awesome view of the coast of Shodoshima.
