10 Senbon Torii at Fushimi Inari Taisha in Kyoto, Japan

The most visually fascinating feature of Fushimi Inari Taisha is Senbon Torii, meaning thousands of gates. Estimates vary, but there are over 10,000 of these bright vermillion gates lined side-by-side winding to the top of Mount Inari. Worshippers and businesses have donated them to the shrine since the Edo period beginning in 1603. These gifts are accompanied by a substantial money contribution to the shrine.
