Torii gates of Fushimi Inari

A torii (鳥居, literally bird abode, Japanese pronunciation: [to.ɾi.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 profane to sacred – Wikipedia

I took a walk through the torii gates leading up to the Fushimi Inari shrine.

It was a long walk, on a hot and humid day,  with crowds and crowds of people.

I did not make it past the profane.
