A Torii Gate

Throughout the complex of the Fushimi Inari Shrine there are many buildings, structures & Torii gates. This is the torii gate across the pathway to one of the smaller shrines of the complex.  Not clear in this photo are the prayer cards and flags that are left at the shrine. Through the gate and to the right of the pathway they are displayed on the wall, the cards on the top and the flags underneath. When I first saw the flags, I thought they were scarves hanging for sale. I was soon corrected by our guide.
