This small temple called Sazae-Do was built 200 years or more ago.
The inside is a one-way traffic slope of double helix structure. It has structure similar to a univalve shell. It is because a Sazae(さざえ) means a univalve shell.
It is a straight road from an entrance to an exit through a summit. It is a very unusual and interesting design.
