Senbon Torii are the famous gates at Fushimi Inari Taisha in Kyoto. The gates are densely packed together and ordered in a beautiful sequence from the foot of the mountain to the top. As you walk through the gates you can see the visually stunning intertwining of the old faded archways with those that are bright red and scarlet. The movie "Memoirs of a Geisha" was also filmed here.
