Photographer's Note

Photo taken at Fushimi Inari Shrine, Kyoto.
The shrine was founded in 711 and is the main shrine of Inari shrines all over Japan. Originally dedicated to the goddess of rice and other foods the shrine later included deities for commerce housing and other aspects of life. The Main Hall (Important Cultural Property) was built in 1499. Thousands of red gates (torii) create a 4-kilometer vermillion tunnel. The sight is very unique! It takes you around 2 hours to walk all the path, tiring but very enjoyable!
