Here's the entrance gate to the Narita-san Shinsho-ji Temple in a very special Japanese style. It's a beautiful place with landscape gardens in Narita not far from Tokyo. The pedestrian crossing sign seems to be out of place but it's just to remind you this landmark is worth seeing:))

Nice view of pagoda style temple from Japan. Unique angle and POV to take this shot, the temple loos all the more impressive. Great contrast between the roof and the clear blue sky. Beautiful old world architecture and charm all over the frame. Well seen and taken, thanks for sharing.

A very beautiful gate, such intricate and wonderful detailing to it and unde really fine light. Th crossing sign doesn't actually detract for me at all, I think it looks okay they're, you certainly composed it it the least intrusive way possible. And what a fantastic blue sky above it all!

the Japanese architecture is very interesting and this one is no exception. I would love to see some of the gardens you are writing about. Very good colors and well handled light. Perfect sharpness.
Thanks for sharing

Very articulate and classical Japanese architecture with the Narita-san Shinsho-ji entrance gate, which looks elaborate enough to be a temple unto itself.
And I would love to explore the gardens.
Thanks for sharing,
PS: The Navajo Nation protects Monument Valley and exploring on top of the buttes and mesas are forbidden, but you can go horseback riding with their guided trips.

A grand temple entrance nicely positioned with its typical architectural style and the huge roof standing out to bright blue background. I think there's nothing can be done about the sign. Excellent capture and processing. Congrats, TFS
