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!

Konnichiwa Minatsu-san, o-genki desu ka
Very interesting composition, I like the colours of this photo, but I am sorry to say that the people in this photo don't fit into it very well.
Even still it looks nice.
Very good capture of the path leading into the photo, don't know why but I always love this feature.
Colour looks alittle sharp, did you use a flash? It doesn't ruin anything, but it disturbs a little, doesn't make the colours look natural.
Thank you for sharing.
