Mystery Stones of Gifu

As we were travelling back from Takayama to Nagoya I kept noticing these mysterious stones and stone monuments in the small villages along the route. I’m still not sure what they are but I guess they are family graves of some kind or possibly, as they seemed to be beside rice paddies, a harvest offering.
