According to Tripadvisor this should be one of the best attraction in Japan. To be honest I was a bit disappointed, I guess there are better places (and I´ve seen them!). It is a photogenic place, the never-ending lines of Torii gates are beautiful. But...More

Located just literally outside Inari Station, this shrine is really worth a visit. We could only schedule this trip on a Saturday morning and it's really filled with people. The walk through the Torii gates allowed zero chances of stopping to take a snapshot because...More

Famous for its thousands of orange tori / gates and fox statues. Even after seeing so many temples around Kyoto, this one was truly remarkable. Close by are some sake museum and distillery.

Place was absolutely beautiful but quite crowded. If you plan on walking to the summit it takes about 2 hours so plan ahead if you want to walk a bit further up. There are two entrances. The entrance in front of the JR station features...More

Even my 11 & 13 year old loved this shrine. It's a beautiful setting and you can walk 2 hours up the mountain or just do part of the way and turn back. Don't miss it!

I was warned by others about the crowding at this attraction, so I arrived at Fushimi Inari at 6:30 am to hike up the gates. There were few people and many of them were lazy and did not make it to the top of the...More

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

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
I'm planning to go by Kyoto (in a few days... ) what is the closet and easiest station to get to the Shrine from Kyoto Station? I'm actually staying close to Mototanaka St. but I'll go by Kyoto St. anyway. And I don't quite understand the Shrine, because in some articles it says that to go to the shrine there will be a path (2-3 hours) from the entrance. But then there is also another one saying you just go pass the orange gates and then you'll find the Shrine. Please let me know, cause I will be bringing my parents along. So I need to know if it's going to be tiring or not.

No. It is free. It's a public park / shrine. The only fee is if you decide to do a wish or prayer.
