The most famous Torii gates in Japan
1. Heiwa no Torii Address: 80-1 Motohakone, Hakone, Ashigarashimo District, Kanagawa Prefecture
@photooooooo_hj The Torii gate, located at Hakone Shrine, Kanagawa Prefecture, has a special location that floats on the water, attracting a large number of photographers and visitors. To get here, you have to walk through a dense forest from Hakone Shrine and then climb the stone stairs.
@eunice123223 Aside from Heiwa no Torii, Hakone Shrine features two other large Torii gates amidst dense forests and mountains. This shrine, which has a history dating back to 757, is a prominent spiritual destination for military commanders from feudal times and is frequently visited by tourists to pray for safe journeys. Nowadays, people often come here to pray for many things, such as good luck or finding a true partner.
@cyik_m 2. Kamiiso no Torii Address: 249-1 Isohamacho, Oarai, Higashiibaraki District, Ibaraki Prefecture
@muuu34 Kamiiso no Torii is surrounded by seawater, and depending on the tides of the day, you can see the gate standing on a cliff or floating on the water. Usually, people just look at this Torii gate from afar, admiring the scenery of waves crashing against the rocks. Kamiiso no Torii, belonging to Oarai Isosaki Shrine, appeared in 856.
@niiisho124 Legend has it that this gate is the place where the gods Daikoku-sama and Sukunahikona-no-Mikoto descended to earth. The best time to visit Kamiiso no Torii is on New Year's Day, following the Hatsumoude ritual.
@traceofaftersound 3. Tenku no Torii Address: 1119-2 Kawaguchi, Fujikawaguchiko, Minamitsuru District, Yamanashi Prefecture Tenku no Torii, or "Heaven's Gate", is a perfect destination to capture the sacred Mount Fuji, the symbol of Japan. The Torii gate is located on a hill at Kawaguchi Asama Shrine. The shrine was built to worship Mount Fuji, and Tenku no Torii is its remote prayer location. A special feature of Kawaguchi Asama is 7 sacred cedar trees over 1200 years old. They are considered "natural monuments" of Yamanashi. A note for visitors is that if you come to take pictures with a camera, you will have to pay a fee of about 500 yen. The proceeds will be used for operation and maintenance. If you take photos with a mobile phone, it's free.
@emily_in_japan 4. Oyunohara Torii Address: 1 Hongucho Hongu, Tanabe, Wakayama Prefecture
@bassetts.bouken Oyunohara Torii is the largest Torii gate in Japan, located in Wakayama Prefecture. It is 33 meters tall and belongs to Kumano Hongu Taisha, the main shrine of the three shrines of the Kumano Sanzan in the Kumano region. According to records, the shrine first appeared in the early 9th century. Until 1889, the shrine had been seriously damaged by a flood and was rebuilt about 1km from its original location.
@__ryos_ When passing through Oyunohara Torii, you will have to continue 158 stone steps to reach Kumano Hongu Taisha, which has a leaf-roofed main hall. The highlight of this ancient shrine is the Yatagarasu three-legged crow symbol, the messenger of the gods, symbolizing heaven, earth, and humanity.
