Sumiyoshi Taisha’s Torii
A torii is a symbolic Shinto shrine gate which consists of two upright pillars connected by two horizontal beams on top. It marks the entrance to a sacred area. Torii literally means “a perch for birds.” It is said that they were originally perches for the roosters people offered to shrines.
