Fushimi Inari is a Shinto shrine famous for its endless torii gates. Torri are commonly found at the entrance of Shinto shrines, marking the entrance of a sacred space. Fushimi is super sacred with its 10,000 torii. The torii are all donations by individuals and companies, their names inscribed on the gate they paid for. The smallest donation is 400,000 yen, the largest is a million. Hopefully a donation comes with a map of where your torii is located otherwise it may be an impossible task to find.

    When we were in Kyoto, we missed this. WOW. Absolutely gorgeous. Temecula s Duck Pond has a torii if you miss Japan too much.

    1. There is always next time!
      I would like to see more. When it isn’t so hot!
