Torii, Itsukushima Shrine

Posted by
Daryl Johnson (Worcester Park, United Kingdom) on 7 July 2010 in Architecture and Portfolio.

...the shrine's torii gate is the famous sight that greets visitors to Miyajima island, and is, of course, what the schoolchildren in the previous few days' images were taking photos of.

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!
