“Torii” is at the entrance of the shrine that you will see it before you entering the shrine. Where there is a “Torii” there is a shrine, as it means the a divide between God and Human. When you get into the “Torii”, you have stepped into the world of God. You must be careful to your behavior as same as you can not talk in the Temple.(Some place you can see trees surrounded by white paper, these tress are deity trees).
