Fushimi Inari Shrine Kyoto

Our Pic of the Day: Fushimi Inari Shrine Kyoto

Thousands of these Torii gates line a path up the mountainside in Kyoto Japan. Together they make up the Fushimi Inari Shrine Kyoto. The shrine is the most important of all Inari shrines, dedicated to the Shinto god of rice. The shrine is also popular with tourists, who walk up Mount Inari, reaching the top at 233 meters in about an hour. The vermilion torii gates are incredibly atmospheric, especially if you go early in the morning when the light is soft and there are very few tourists.
