There are said to be about 10,000 tori gates along this mountain path. It felt like there were nearly as many steps winding up through the forest trail too, as the early morning sunlight beamed through. It all sure made for an incredible hike and perhaps our favorite outing in Kyoto yet!

This landmark is renowned for its artistic construction and was selected by the UK publisher Dorling Kindersley as an entry in the “Top 20 Buildings Around the World,” appearing alongside such historical marvels as the Parthenon in Athens and the Colosseum in Rome.
