A roadside shoppingmall shrine...but of courseAs we stopped on the way for gas, drinks and ...well you get the gist ;-) we were faced with one of the wonders of Japan, a shrine so incredibly out of place it seemed bizarre even for Japan... not only was it a religious place of worship in a place where people only pass through but it was also a phallus fertility shrine....

Shrine Prayer tablets at the local gas stop fertily shrine Prayer tablets...
