Red Torii gates at Fushimi Inari Shrine in Kyoto, lining the paths on the hill on which the shrine is located. The Torii gates are donations from individuals, families or companies and lead up to the main shrine at the top of the hill. Fushimi Inari Shrine is one of Kyoto's landmarks and has been featured in countless movies as backdrop. A torii is a traditional Japanese gate commonly found at the entry to a Shinto shrine. The basic structure of a torii is two columns that are topped with a horizontal rail. Slightly below the top rail is a second horizontal rail. Torii are traditionally made from wood and are usually painted vermilion red.
