TORII IN NAGASAKI:

(1/2) > >>

Steve:
What is the torri in Nagasaki made of? It survived the atomic bomb in 1945 and the earthquake and tsunami in 2011? It is still standing???

don:
Probably stone.

Mark:
-although, Nagasaki is on a bay on the west coast of Kyushu, and the earthquake/tsunami struck the sanriku coastline- the area facing east/northeast around Sendai, about 715 miles from Nagasaki to Sendai- at that distance, I do not think that there was any perceptible movement.

kikujunjo:
Stone

Itazura:
There's a picture circulating that purports to show the torii at Nagasaki and the same torii at Tohoku. They are two different torii, with slightly different design changes.
