Sembon Torii
My mom came to Japan to visit me during Spring Vacation, so we spent a few days in Kyoto and Osaka. The first place we went in Kyoto was the Fushimi Inari shrine, home of the 10,000 torii gates that little Sayuri runs through in Memoirs of a Geisha. So of course, I ran through them as well. Not all of them, mind you. There were a heck of a lot of gates.

Videos to come later.

    Ooh...pretty! :) Between your blog and Chris's I'm starting to want to go to Japan! Maybe someday - and hey, at least once I move to CA I'll be closer, right? Hope you're doing well!

    Jiff: it was pretty awesome watching my daughter take up where I left off in the languages department. I so want to learn Japanese now! Really learn it. She inspires both her father and I daily.
