In the photographer's words: "Nestled between elegant Buddhist temples in one of the oldest and grandest temple complexes in Japan, I happened to stumble upon a tiny, unassuming Shinto shrine.  The torii gates, their painted red hue faded by time, seemed somehow in turn lovingly adorned by nature's green mosses. This hidden path led to a mysteriously different realm; take a step here and leave the world behind."
