Photographer's Note

Back again with more from my archive... this will take ages...

During my then 5th trip to Japan I finally got to visit Fushimi Inari Taisha just south of Kyoto.

The shrines dedicated to the god Inari are probably the most numerous in all of Japan, but this, the head shrine, definetively has the most Torii in all of Japan.

The walkpath snaking its way up the mountain Inari is continously lined with torii, but mainly the lower parts of the 4km path up the maountain is lined as tightly as in this photo.
Each torii donated by a business, the main path is said to be line by around 10000 torii.

I have only walked around the first kilometer of the path and the distance between each torii gradually gets larger.
I plan to go back to Japan this summer, and one of the plans is to walk the entire path.
