We found the shrine quite easily, we were escorted to the sight and offered incense to burn. However it is clearly a relocated site that does not have the interest of the previous location. Maybe in years to come it might.

Just a small house of spirits with few falic motives, not very valuable for the difficulty to find it. Furthermore is located on a private custodiate place, so you probably should visit the shine with the guardian supervision.
