Fushimi Inari Shrine

Perhaps my favorite shrine in Japan. It has played host to the movie Memoirs of a Geisha, and snakes up through a mountain just outside of Kyoto. It’s home to thousands of Torii or gates. Each one of these has been donated by businesses in hopes of please Inari or the god of business. These torii are placed extremely close to each other and form a tunnel of pure orange and red. As i entered this tunnel of torii, I was left speechless by its beauty and the share amount of gates. It’s a remarkable place to visit and see first hand.
