    Cool photo ! I’ve lived in Kyoto about 4 years ago. It brings back memories from the days.
    The shrine name is “Inari”, not “Iniri”. I love this shrine too.:-)

    Great photo! Anyone travelling to Kyoto should contact Chris Rowthorn (http://www.chrisrowthorn.com/) – he’s the Lonely Planet guidebook writer for Japan, and gives walking tours on occasion.

    He was fantastic with my family of five – a we had a fabulous day. If you are looking for all the great “back door” experiences, without the tourist traps – give him a buzz.

    Very cool. What’s written on the pillars? I recognize a lot of characters, but I know them in Chinese not Japanese. First two on the right look like they might be dates or commemorations of events (assuming year and month are same characters in both languages).
