Torii gates are a common sight in Japan. But do you know what they symbolise and there’s a correct way to pass through them? ⛩️🧡 Torii gates are often seen at the entrance to Shinto shrines and are said to mark the boundary between the ordinary world and the sacred ground. The correct way to enter is to bow once before the torii gate, and it’s also customary not to walk through the exact centre of the gate either – walk a little to the left or right. 📷 Pictured is Tenku no Torii (torii in the sky) at Kawaguchi Asama Shrine captured by @kyoko1903. #VisitJapanAU#Tradition
Bu haftaki @arslongasanat#arslongahistorical etkinliğine son anda katılmaya karar verdim, çünkü ne yapacağıma bir türlü karar verememiştim 😅 Sonunda geçen sene Japonya seyahatimde beni en çok etkileyen yerlerden biri olan Fushimi Inari Tapınağı'nın o devasa Torii kapısının içinden görünen halini çizmeye karar verdim. Fotoğrafı da kaydirarak görebilirsiniz.
This hike at #fushimiinari was intense and we didn’t even make it all the way up the mountain 😂. But it was totally worth it. Man I miss travelling. I really hope the ban gets lifted soon 😭. Any suggestions on where I should go next? 🤔
