things, they are still religious thingies that mean things to people. I've never
been a big fan of using religious things for decoration (don't get me started on
popslutstars who wear big crosses as jewelry).
Now, on the other hand, you can build a *real* small shrine (typically about the
size of a portable TV) in the garden; there are several different styles of
yashira you can use, depending on how talented/ambitious you are, and how much
you want to blow on decoration. You don't need a torii per se (you can use a
knotted rope with streamers instead). If you want to make the standing yashira,
a torii just wide enough to admit you and just tall enough that you don't have
to stoop leading to a six foot path in front of it wouldn't be too odd.
