Memorial - Shinto Gate

I had some cocktail umbrellas which i used to compose the above image



I was truly amaze to see these oriental style stones in rememberance of Master Sosai Masutatsu Oyama, founder of Kyokushin karate in this little town of ours.

Later, I found out that it's call Shinto Gate, one of the younger memorials in the town. The idea came from former Kyokushin karate European champion and Szentes' born, Sándor Bresovai, when the town had the honour to organise the European championship in 2001.

I wouldn't get on the wrong side of anyone there then- have to be careful with the camera.

Totally love the first photo, how the brances partially block the umbrella... nice angle!

There are also Oyama dojos here in Alabama, USA. I did not know his schools were so widespread.

I like the way you arranged the top photo. Did you have to drink all those cocktails yourself?
