This vermilion Shinto portal is located near the World Showcase Lagoon. The gate is modeled after the Floating Torii at the Itsukushima Shrine. The famous World Heritage Site was built in 1555 on Miyajima, also called Shrine Island. The Shinto religion dates back to the 6th century and is followed by about 80% of Japanese. There are over 100,000 Shinto shrines in Japan. Most of them have a torii gate symbolizing the entrance to a sacred place.
