Fushimi Momoyamaryo, the mausoleum of the Emperor Meiji, is on a small hill and surrounded by trees. It is a good place for contemplation.

There is nothing to see except a run-of-the-mill Torii gate and some sparsely planted bushes. This is not a "tourist" site so much as one of several places were Emperor Meiji's ashes are enshrined. The tomb of the emperor is off limits to the public so the only thing to do here is climb the 220 stairs in front of... More

"In the evening of September 13, 1912, a gold leaf and lacquer cart hauled by a team of oxen left the Imperial Palace in Tokyo. People were carrying banners, torches and weapons and beating drums and gongs. Just after midnight a special train left Tokyo Station bound for the old Imperial capital of Kyoto. People gathered at the main stations... More

It's the site of the original Fushimi Castle (thus the picture) which replica is located half a mile from the tomb. It can be seen from a distance. The nearest JR station is Fushimi Momoyama.

Staying in Southern Kyoto

Neighbourhood Profile
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 mountain's off-set paths aren't frequented by tourists, and the mountain's serenity can be enjoyed at a leisurely pace. Southern Kyoto is the place to enjoy being outside, and to pay your respects to the ancient architecture and gods of the land that are celebrated here.
