Shrines

Hello! I have found my way back to my blog! Somehow I just couldnt make it work after my initial post… most annoying, but honestly was a bit cross-eyed-tired to try to sort it at the end of each day!

Anyway… having a lovely time here with my folks showing them around. Tourism has grown hugely since our last trip. Seems Japan got really popular!

Today’s excursion was to Fushimi Inari. It’s a fab place to check out… literally thousands of tori line the pathways making stunning vermillion tunnels through the green of the mountainside.

Once we started climbing a little further up, the crowds of selfie-taking hoardes thinned a bit which was nice.

Some of the smaller shrines are so very old and worn

I liked finding smaller paths and stone stairways to detour to.

I am glad Jeff is snapping away on his tablet… so now I have my act together at least I have some photos to share

Hundreds of tiny folded cranes

Anyway I hope everyone is doing well and I hope I will be able to return more frequently to annoy you all!

Cheers!

  1. Oh my goodness that is a LOT of cranes!
    Is that a giant squirrel?? Scary or cute…I can’t decide!
    Have a wonderful visit!

    1. lol – I had to go back to the post to see the squirrel! THEN I realised how weird the tablet acts when posting photos. Oh dear.
      Anyway… thats a fox! I will eventually get a post up from my ‘real’ cameras shots and expand on the history of each area. These are guardians I think. Usually one has rice in its mouth and the other a scroll… will have to check up on that tho!
