Circles Japan Trip Day Two: A visit to UNESCO World Heritage Site, Fushimi Inari Taisha, a unique site among Japanese Shinto Shrines, where a pathway of 10,000 vermillion-colored torii gates stretch 2.5 miles up the hillside. Next stop was to Ginkakuji, the Silver Pavillion, formerly known as Jishojo. We then moved onward to Saihoji Moss Temple. For our final stop we visited Japanese contemporary artist Kohei Nawa’s studio. Photos could not be taken at his studio as sculptures for an upcoming exhibition were in the process of being created. Nawa is known for his PixelCell series and recently, his large scale installation “Thrown” was on view in the Louvre Pyramid from July 2018 to February 2019.
