The torii gates looked like it stretched for miles. Orange is my least favorite color, but the afternoon sun making deep shadows on the rows of gates made a very pleasant view. The place attracted a steady flow of locals and tourists, we can hardly get a good photo of ourselves without them photo-bombing us :-) I'm sure they felt... More

Beautiful rows of red gates with huge crowds, But that was expected .Also skip breakfast before going there-food stalls on approaching road are plentiful, tasty and traditional Japanese.

A waste of time in my opinion. Huge crowds and nothing else. This place is only good for one reason - photos. Otherwise, there is nothing there. Thankfully, it's easy to get to and from as it's so close to Kyoto station.

The temple is very nice for walking up to the hill under the Japanese temple gates and surrounding trees besides the walking paths.

On of the main sightseeing of Japan. You can feel like entering in a sacred field from the beginning. The views from the top are good too.

We didn't arrive early so we dealt with the crowds. We arrived around 1030 am. The gates are pretty awesome and they make for great pictures. If you're bringing a baby I recommend using your baby carrier for this one. A stroller would be possible, but you'll be lifting it for a large portion. Initially there are lots of people... More

Gorgeous and breathtaking. It gets incredibly crowded but do the hike to the top of Mt. Inari and the crowds will thin out significantly. It's quite the workout so wear comfy clothes, shoes and bring plenty of water and some snacks.

While i would have preferred to visit the famed vermillion torii gates during day time, night fell too early that day. It was every bit as mysterious and grand. It made my trip to Kyoto all the more worth while. Will visit again for sure!

By the time I visited Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine I was suffering from temple/shrine fatique! However the torii gate covered hiking trail was different other I would not have remembered this shrine. As usual the trail was packed full of people so I was very pleased to have taken one photo with just a hint of a person in it!

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.
