Where organized religion is all but disappeared in the Japanese culture, our family didn't want to miss visiting the LDS temple in Japan. Wherever possible our family makes a point of visiting a LDS temple on our travels. We want to show and teach our children that principles transcend all cultures, fads and history. It's important to stand for...

The Fushimi Inari-Taisha is a wave of blood orange gates that sing a melodious song of loyalty. Each gate is one voice in a chorus singing hymnals to the sky.
