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.
