Scenery with the torii

We can see the torii anywhere in Japan in every five minutes.
There is especially no deep emotion for such reasons.
Cherry blossoms are certainly beautiful.
However, I think the torii of this strange shape that is anywhere to be a
symbol of Japan.
And, it matches it to the scenery of Japan very much.

Nice , reminds me of putting crosses on top of hills. The aesthetic appeal is very similar. Also remind me of churches and shrines in a way. Who maintains them? Are they historic objects? I will check wikipedia about them
