  Heian Shrine Torii Gate

Heian Shrine is a Shinto Shrine, built in the year 1895.

This shrine has the largest torii gate in Japan, which arches over a busy road. The torii gate was constructed in 1920, and is 24.2 m tall, with a top rail 33.9 m long. We saw lots of people taking photos of this gate before and after they enter the shrine.
