Beautiful spot. The hike up is worth it but best views from halfway up. Shorter on the way down. Lots of good photo spots.

It’s interesting to see this tourist spot to say you have been there of course but the famous gates have little history as they are relatively new (from what I am told). It’s good to browse the local shops and to meet local people of...More

A must see in Kyoto. It is a bit of a walk but a very pleasant place. Be careful though it gets very busy and loosing people in the crowd is possible.

This was a gem. It is beautiful and as you continue your walk you will see more of Fushimi. Great place to see the culture and many of the people are dress up in kimono. You can get great pics but depending on the time....More

Am absolute must. The walk in the mountains under the torii is incredibly spiritual. Make sure you wear comfortable shoes!

Fushimi Inari Taisha is the most incredible place I've ever been. It's majesty, history, culture, evolution and power is mind blowing. Yes there are crowds but if you chose to spend the money and do The Alternative Walking Tour with XJ, you will find more...More

Southern Kyoto
Southern Kyoto has a reserved air. Though the Fushimi
Inari Shrine is one of Kyoto's major tourist
attractions, the surrounding nature, parks, gardens,
temples, and shrines provide less-visited spaces for
strolling and reflection. The Fushimi Inari Shrine
itself is made up of 32,000 sub-shrines, and the
mountain they are dotted across beckons hikers,
picnickers, and lovers of the outdoors. Many of the

I believe it's always crowded, most places of interest are quieter early morning. The local Kyoto trains reach all locations quickly. I would suggest downloading the city's transport map and work out routes as best you can... More
