The Fushimi-Inari shrine was our favourite of the many stunning temples and shrines in Kyoto. A tunnel of thousands of bright orange torii gates snake through the forest up into the mountains. The black lettering is the names of individuals and companies who have donated them. Early in the morning it was a peaceful and magical place.
