Red Gates



These two pictures are Fushimi Inari Shrine in Kyoto. It is one of the most famous Shinto shrines in Japan, which is regarded to enshrine the deities of agriculture and business. You can easily understand why this place is so popular. It is also famous for its 1,000 torii gates, as you can see in the second picture. Every time I walk through this red tunnel, I'm overwhelmed with these gates.

This is linking up with Ruby Tuesday 2 and Our World Tuesday.

  6. Very interesting post. The tunnel is stunning. The front face on picture one is very crowded with details and as such not so inspiring as is the tunnel. But in all very remarkable.
