Small shrine/temple on Nanzoin grounds, Sasaguri 篠栗 南増員 福岡

Small shrine/temple on Nanzoin grounds, Sasaguri 篠栗 南増員 福岡
There were many small shrine/temple buildings scattered about on the temple site, besides the large Hondo. The lantern says "Sanbou Koujin (三宝荒神)," the first part, "sanbou" means "the 3 treasures of Buddhism: Buddha, sutras and priesthood," but the second, "koujin (荒神)," references a "kitchen god." In short, when you put them together, you've got me. Perhaps this building contains kitchen sutras?!
