Kibitsu Shrine, Okayama 6

Daryl Johnson (Worcester Park, United Kingdom) on 7 September 2009 in Architecture and Portfolio.

The long corridor, following the contours of the underlying land, is another famous feature of this shrine.

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

beautiful tones here -- the soft curve of the walkway / bridge is wonderful movement for the eye too! and this lighting is so wonderfully soft!!

A round shape like a bridge for this corridor. Nice alternance of light and shadows.

Seems very vacant. I don't think of Japan as so much an empty space.
