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...
