This is really a tourist destination. Just a few steps away from the JR Inari station. You should come here very early so that you will have a great picture of the Tori gates. Once many tourists are here especially in the afternoon, you will...More

We have visited Kyoto as part of our anniversary trip to Japan. Our tip when you are visiting and climbing to the mountain- take the second road up- it is less crowded and you will pass by amazing bamboo forest and the main road down

It's ok the wife and I didn't get much out of it. Some of the gates need to be repaired. We both thought there would be more to it.

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,
