Helen And Mark Breaking In
The Torii were close enough together that you often couldn't get between the. This was a rare chance to put two heads in the scene.
People: Helen, Mark

Sun Breaking Into Tunnel
I like the little lantern to ensure there is enough light.

Stone Lantern With Snow On Top
I call this a "Chicken Cordon Bleu" shot - take something cool and put in in the foreground (but not in the center) and then add something else cool and use it to fill the background. If you don't like the chicken, maybe you will like the ham.

Gate Breaking Down
Torri rarely fall to this level of disrepair. I really like the moss growing on top of the posts. The stones on top of the cross bar is a common theme in Japan - often you get a reward (luck, a child etc) if you can throw a rock and have it land on the cross bar. Often there are additional requirements - off hand, stand behind the line, etc.

Sponsors Visible
Each Torii is sponsored. The Sponsors is written on one side of the Torri so the Torii are clean going in and the credits run on the way out.

Shrine And Tree In Pool
Many people, when entering the pool for the first time, went to the shrine, prayed and then clapped.

Floating Torii From Side
We didn't have the nice light to really make the torii stand out, but this is an angle I hadn't seen before so I guess I can call it mine.

Stone Entrance
These are the little shops outside of the garden proper. They sell lots of regional specialties and tourist type stuff.

Blue Pool of Hell
Umi Jigoku is known for it's sea-blue pool, but the grounds and surround gates are also worth visiting. The pool was hard to photograph - there is so much steam, the pool and the color is often obscured.
