This is a view of the stone torii gate and Omote-sando approach to Toshogu Shinto Shrine. The torii was donated by Kuroda Echizennokami Nagamasa in 1618. Nine meters high, it is the largest stone torii gate built during the Edo Period. Two men, apparently samurai, stand in front of the gate, and the sky is visible through the cedar trees.
