For some context, here are 4 pictures. 


The first two is a remote Shinto shrine (building=shrine) located on a hilltop. 

It is a building the size of a garage. 


The third is a small wayside shrine for a natural spring, visible as white bubbles on the left. A much larger temple (?) Is 30m away. 


The last one is a mystery to me. There are often carved tablets or writing carved into the stone near certian natural features. These are on enoshima island near the cliffs and tidal flats, with a view of Mt Fuji. I see these kind of carvings and tablets - but I have no idea of their origin or purpose. 

They are below this building. 

Similar to this carving in Kyoto in a temple complex https://www.flickr.com/photos/javbw/11083806845/

Or this tablet in a rural mountain forest. 

They might all have different meanings and completely different form one another - but represent the kind of "wayside objects" I see that are in the smaller side.
