Daily Photo: Nagara Shrine

FUJIFILM X-T20 1/60 second F/5.0 ISO 640 36 mm

In the year 1054 this shrine was moved from the top of Nagara Mountain to its current location in Otsu so that the common people could also pray here. The two-storey gate was completed in 1905, and medieval architectural styles can be seen put to use beautifully in all of its details.
