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!

Lovely the way this holds together . . the toning further helps impress the robust strength of the structure here.

i love all this wood -- so natural and relaxing... plus everything is so BIG in japan... the logs, the temples, the buddhas... it makes me feel humble yet at ease. :)
