Fushimi Inari Shrine

We went out to Fushimi Inari Shrine in the afternoon afters pending the morning in Himeji. It has thousands of torii.

Here we are washing our hands to ritually purify ourselves before entering the shrine.

Many paper cranes madeinto chains. There must beat least 1000 of them (remember the story that 1000 paper cranes will grant you a wish).

a smaller shrine, with lots of mini Torii stacked up.

Another shrine-those are stacks of small Torii in the background.
