Old Abandoned Marker Stone

I discovered this old stone resting beside a trash burning pit on a deserted beach in Shimizu, Japan near the end of the Miho peninsula. Though I am not certain, the stone appears to be either an old grave marker or highway marker. The area where I found the stone was once the site of a very old fishing community where the artist Hiroshige Ando described enjoying a pleasant meal of baked salt fish. This famous artist would come to this site to view and produce art images of Mt. Fuji for use in his famous woodblock prints. He once described the area around this beach as the best location in Japan for viewing Mt. Fuji.
