Nezu shrine with many red toriis and plenty of important cultural assets (Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo)


There are many Inari shrines with many red torii in Tokyo.
Among them, “Nezu shrine” is popular.
I was overwhelmed by not only the red torii but also the buildings designated as important cultural properties.
