Japanese Torii gates are seen at the entrance to Shinto Temples in Japan and we offer a range of Torii for customers wanting to introduce a feature such as this in their own Japanese garden.
We make our Torii gates to order in various styles from simple to completely authentic ones. They are usually constructed from chunky profile softwood timber in either round or square profile that are finished in the characteristic deep red stain with black ‘socks’. The support posts have to be concreted into the ground for stability, so we also offer a delivery and installation service at extra cost.
We also construct our Torii gates from green Oak timbers that are finished in Teak oil and we add some black stain detail to the top curved capping timber and the four timber wedges that secure the middle rail in place. A Torii such as this would not require maintenance apart from occasional re-oiling, or the timber can simply be left to weather to a natural silver grey colour.
A typical Torii is usually 2.40 meters long x 2.60 meters high, but can be made in any dimension to suit the space in your garden. Please note that the timber is likely to split over time, but this will not affect it’s structural integrity.
The least expensive option would be £2000 ex-works. We can arrange to deliver and install the Torii gate at additional cost.
