Reliving the moments. One of my fondest fascinations in Japan were the torii gates. They're everywhere! Everyone who passes in or out pays their respects (including me before having my photos taken ūüôá‚Äć‚ôāÔłŹ ). Last photo not a torii gate but just an actual gate. ūüėÖ #Kyoto #Japan #throwback *** Wiki: A¬†torii¬†(ť≥•ŚĪÖ, literally bird abode,¬†Japanese pronunciation:¬†[to.…ĺi.i] )¬†is a traditional¬†Japanese¬†gate¬†most commonly found at the entrance of or within a¬†Shinto shrine, where it symbolically marks the transition from the mundane to the sacred. Torii gates were traditionally made from wood or stone, but today they can be also made of reinforced concrete, copper, stainless steel or other materials. They are usually either unpainted or painted¬†vermilion¬†with a black upper¬†lintel.¬†Inari shrines¬†typically have many¬†torii¬†because those who have been successful in business often donate in gratitude a¬†torii¬†to¬†Inari,¬†kami¬†of fertility and industry.¬†Fushimi Inari-taisha¬†in¬†Kyoto¬†has thousands of such¬†torii, each bearing the donor's name. . . . #OsakaJapan #Japan #AmazingOsaka #vacation #destination #travel #wheretonext #winter #OOTD #IGersManila #IGers #forthegram #Pinoy #Asian #mensfashion #mensstyle #photography #travelogue
