Inari Flag Tunnel

This was taken at Toyokawa Inari Shrine. I’ve written before that one of the tell-tale signs of an Inari Shrine is that it features multiple torii gates in a row. The most famous example of this is Fushimi Inari in Kyoto. Often when people donate a certain amount of money they get a torii gate with their name. At Toyokawa Inari, however, they use flags instead. As a result, just about every single path is lined with hundreds of flags. Not as cool looking as multiple torii gates, I think, but still a neat effect.

I wonder what’s at the end of this path…
