Gates at the Fushimi, Inari Shrine, Kyoto, Japan


The Fushimi Inari Shrine is, in my opinion, the most impressive shrine in all of Kyoto. It is a Shinto shrine dedicated to the spirit Inari, who looks over agriculture and personal fortune. The path up the mountain is lined by orange gates which are sponsored and constantly being built and rebuilt.
