Vermilion Torii

One of the attractions of the Fushimi Inari Shrine is the endless ( or so it seems) pathway with thousands of Torri gates.  Inari,  ( the God of rice) now governs the modern business in success and prosperity, so each one of these thousands of Torri gates has been donated and inscribed by  a business who is thankful. Apparently the pathway goes on for miles, with over 10,000 of these gates, and takes a few hours to walk the distance. We were at the end of a very long day so I didn't walk too far.
