Details, Fushimi Inari-taisha – Kyoto, Japan

From my coverage of Japan so far, you might have wondered if I just confined myself to modern Japan. Not to fear, I did my share of sightseeing of the ancient structures. Up today, details from Fushimi Inari-taisha, a Shinto Shrine located in Kyoto. As the title suggests, I’m starting a series of architectural details from this place.

The first structures date from 811 AD but this building was probably built around 1499. The fresh vermilion color is a sign of recent renovations, which seems to have occurred around 2011, based on internet research. The striking color and details were beckoning me to shoot close.

I used the Olympus 14-150mm f4-5.6 lens which works especially well during the day, for travel photography. Here, I shot at a 58mm equivalent and did my best to create a symmetrical composition.
