My last morning in Japan. I had a wonderful trip. What I liked most? It is difficult to say. I saw many wonderful places. One of the most unusual was the view of thousands torii in Fushimi Inari.
Fushimi Inari Taisha is the head shrine of Inari, located in Fushimi-ku, Kyoto, Japan. The shrine sits at the base of a mountain also named Inari, and includes trails up the mountain to many smaller shrines.
Since in early Japan Inari was seen as the patron of business, each of the Torii is donated by a Japanese business. First and foremost though, Inari is the god of rice.
Merchants and manufacturers worship Inari for wealth. Donated torii lining footpaths are part of the scenic view.

il viaggio volge al termine, ma spero non finisca il viaggio delle tue immagini giapponesi su TE!!! In quest'ultima è davvero incredibile il colore delle colonne colpite da una magnifica luce. Bella la prospettiva e la figura umana sullo sfondo.
Un caro abbraccio

if I had to list the most impressive sights I visited in Japan, I could not attach a photo to them since it was forbidden to take pictures - I am thinking about Tadao Ando's Chichu Museum on Naoshima or the 1001 Buddhas in Kyoto... luckily for us, Fushimi Inari could be photographed :)
you were lucky (or most probably very patient, or both) to be able to take this shot with only one person... when I was there last week there were hordes of school children :)
it's one of the perspective that most enhances this place, I tried many different ones but I always ended up with something similar to yours.
good work on the light, the gallery of torii can be very dark at times.

Un beau dernier matin qui te permet de nous présenter cette photo très colorée avec une perspective splendide, encore mieux soulignée par la présence de l'homme au loin.

Hi Emka. This really catch our attention. Colors are very impressive and composition looks nice too. Your perspective and point of view are perfect and the inclusion of person walking by was good and in the best place I think. Well done.
Have a nice weekend.

You've posted quite a few shots from Japan already! I have lots to pick-up from!
Love this view through the bright orange Tori gates which create a great perspective & a strong visual impact. Seen similar pictures from JY, but alas he's deleted his gallery! Good work here!
