Fushimi Inari Shrine (伏見稲荷大社)

posted in: Japan | 0

These are called Torii from Fushimi Inari Shrine in Kyoto, Japan.  They were donated by a Japanese business and there are more than 10,000 of them in the shrine.

This special part is called “One Thousand Torii” and it’s one of the most popular spots. As you can see the color difference, some of them are very old and others are new.  You can feel the sacred atmosphere here.  I would love to go back there sometime.

I have more pictures but I haven’t have time to edit them…  I might post them later or put in the portfolio.

 

京都の伏見稲荷の鳥居です、日本の企業(個人の名前もあったような…)の寄付で立てられている鳥居は大社の中に1万基以上もあります。

この千本鳥居は人気スポットの1つです。色の違いが少しわかるように、とても古いものと新しいもの入り混ぜになっています。神聖な雰囲気を感じることのできる場所です。いつかまた訪れてみたい場所です。

もっと写真はあるのですが編集が追いついていません…またの機会に掲載するかポートフォリオに載せます。
