Sando - via A Japan Photo per Day -

Torii, Fushimi Inari Taisha, Kyoto

One of the places to enjoy while visiting the most important shrines and temples from Japan is the entrance alley, going from the first gate to the main building. Called sandō (which can be translated as a “road for visiting"), this road is in some cases a commercial venue, in others a relaxing, park-like alley. Sometimes there are more sandō, called according to their relative position: omote-sandō for the main entrance (hence the famous Omotesando from Shibuya) or ura-sandō for the lateral road, like the one in my photo, from the Fushimi Inari Taisha in Kyoto.
