Fallen Torii Gate

At the Otawara, Tochigi-ken Shinto shrine, this torii gate was destroyed by the March earthquake.

  1. For me, the Torii is the symbol that I associate most with Japan.

    I also admire their architectural design.

  2. Yes, I love torii also. I don't understand why this hasn't been fixed yet.

    I especially love the Ishidorii in Nokko.

  6. @Japan Australia, yes, I was surprised also.

    @sixmats, it is a small simple shrine for the city.

    @Lina, me too.

  7. It's likely because they will have to construct a new one. It took the Tsubaki Grand Shrine in Washington close to a year to produce a new Torii so it will likely take as long for this shrine.
