Beautiful shrine but crowded

The shrine is beautiful, try spending more time and walking further up to avoid the crowds. This place is simply amazing and mesmerising.

It's beatiful temple. You can rent a kimono, feels like local people. In winter time, make sure come early otherwise at 4.30pm already getting dark.

The first time I watched memoir of geisha I determined to go to this place. I went here on winter when most of days covered in rain. The place is beautiful and more importantly, free! Don't forget to bring umbrella and put your coats on especially on winter rainy days. You don't wanna catch cold.

This is one of my must see place when i decided to visit Japan. And for every reason, its worth it! Although it's quite crowded ( i recommended to visit this place early in the morning to avoid crowded people), this unique place offer something you dont see in your place. When you hiking deeper to the top of the... More

I just realise not many people know and heard of this place. The more you should go before more n more people know about it. But then again, it is already a popular touristy spot. Accessible by both JR and normal trains, the JR train station is right smack opposite it, while the latter you'd still need to walk a... More

This place contains a magic atmosphere and is carachterized by magic sculptures and colors. Walking up to the higher templum in the mountain while snowing has suggested something incredible to eyes. It kept almost 2 hours to enjoy the entire walkway and, after having concluded the path, a lot of street food services were found along the way with nice... More

Did 2 visit during my visit to Osaka; once in the evening and once early morning. Totally different feel in the dark and day. Must try.

Fushimi Inari is a wonderful place for those who wish to see the beautiful red gates, but also who wish to hike. We decided to climb up the mountain; it took almost 1h30m (well i'm a slow walker) but felt great! If you wear heels or sandals, however, it might not be a good idea to climb up. but dont... More

This is certainly one of the sites to visit when in Kyoto, but be wary it's a site where all tourist will visit. It's busy and I mean crowd busy. If you want to avoid come early or come late. If you want a great photo opportunity without fighting the crowd or people spoiling your photo, be patient and keep... More

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.
