First of all, I will explain What is torii gate meaning?.



When we visit a shrine, we first see a torii gate.

Torii displays the shrine and is a symbol of the sacredness of the shrine.

The torii gate is set on the border between the shrine and the outside, and the torii gate is revered as a sanctuary where God can settle down.

In addition, there is a torii gate in front of a shrine where natural objects such as mountains,sea and stones are worshiped as a sacred body, and it is regarded as a sign of the existence of God.
