So let the pictures do the talking! Take a look at Japan through the eyes of Instagram:

Fushimi Inari Shrine in Kyoto is situated at the top of a 4km path leading up a steep hill. These huge orange gates (or torii) line the entire path and the earliest of them were built in 711. To me it's a miracle of ancient engineering as the gates are the size of huge logs. The inscriptions on the sides of the gates are the names of donors who paid millions of yen to have their families permanently remembered on the route to the shrine.
