“Visually stunning”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2012

The path of red pillars is visually stunning. We didn't stay long, but it was worth visiting.

“Fascinating place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2012

This makes for a very interesting day. The shrine is beautiful and fascinating. Certainly worth a visit, especially since it's so easy to get to from Kyoto.

“Get lost a little”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2012

Hiked to the top and raced up some stair sections when inspired by some locals exercising. The tori gates are magnificent in numbers and worth the trip to Inari mountain (which means fox, and explains why there are many fox statues and ornaments on the shrines). The train stops right in front of the entrance and there are several food stalls along the hike to the top. If you take the road back down you end up walking through a high-end suburb and close to the Tofukuji Temple, an absolute must! This zen temple gate is the oldest in Japan. We were suprised there weren't many tourists around. A real gem.

Beautiful to see and peaceful place. Tips ... Don't bring a stroller, go early to avoid the crowds.
