The colours are simply breath-taking. I love the contrast of the dark writing against the brilliance of the oranges, and just overall how the path curves around into the distance. Amazing shot. :D

This is a stunning photo, I photographed a similar place a few years ago, but maybe it does need explaining to westerners? As I understand it these torii leading to a shinto shrine are all dedicated by local companies, families or other concerns to ensure the blessing of whatever kami is enshrined there. The vermillion colour is one way you can tell a shinto shrine from a buddhist temple...

Actually it's Buddhist shrines that are painted red, Shinto tend to be unpainted wood :) But torii in and of themselves, which are usually red, are a Shinto feature.
I meant not to explain, it's more striking when it keeps its mystery...

I stand corrected. The mixture of Buddhist and Shinto buildings in Japan can cause confusion... however I was told by a Japanese person that strictly speaking, a Buddhist establishment is a Temple, and a Shinto establishment is called a Shrine. A subtlety, I know.

Yes true, I was a bit casual with those terms but the difference is unmistakeable on the spot.

Ohmigosh I've been there! My friends and I walked FOREVER to try and get to the top, but there were just a lot of little summit shrines or something, and then we got lost coming down. The millions of orange tori gates were totally rad, though. Fushimi Inari was by far my favorite shrine, although I bought a wicked fox mask at the shops at the bottom and left it there. D: *sad memory*

Yes, I wish I had more time so I could go all the way up :) Very unique place! I was actually there too early, right after sunset, so nothing was open by the time I left :XD:
