The path was covered with the Torii

Within the precincts of Nezu Shrine, there are several auxiliary shrines. The approach to one of them was lined with many toriis. The toriis were so small that I was afraid I might hit my head if I walked under one of them.

Torii is supposed to mark the boundary between the sacred and secular realms, but with so many of them lined up, it was hard to tell where the sacred realm began. All I knew was that if I continued straight under the torii, I would reach the shrine's hall of worship. I don't know the details, but everything under the torii gate must be a Shinto shrine.
