Buddhist Stairway to Heaven?
I found this in a mountain area of Okazaki called “Kabutoyama Forest”. A sign near the beginning of the trail here said that this area includes remains from the Jomon era and burial mounds. There was no sign in English or Japanese for this structure photoed, so I have no idea what I’m looking at. Cool structure though. Anyone know what this kind of buddhist statue is called?
