The figure was descending the narrow stairway

Many Torii stood along the narrow stairway. And they made the staircase like a tunnel. When I stood on the top of the stair and looked down, I found a businessman walking down the staircase. The stairway was dim and the sunlight was shining at the end.

I felt as if the tunnel-like stairway connected between the world where I was and another world. So I started to descend like him to the place where the sun was shining.
