13. Tosho-gu

This is the torii that marks the entrance to Tosho-gu, and this far it may not seem that remarkable. But Tosho-gu is not like other Shinto shrines, that are fairly simple in nature, although they shine clearly with their orange colour. Tosho-gu is a magnificent and breath-taking. It is impossible to capture it fairly in a just a few pictures. You have to be there to really experience it. Nevertheless, the next 20 or more pictures are all from Tosho-gu. Since I was short on time, I did not keep track of all I saw. I just walked around and let my jaw drop.
