This was our second trip to Kyoto.The first time around our son, who was studying in the lovely city felt that my wife , with pain in her knees, should not do the shrine. This time we insisted and we boarded the bus in the...More
Well we imagine it to be just a shrine with the scroll gates. Didn’t expect the area is actually quite big and you can actually go up Mt Inari. Be warn that there are a lot of steps. It is about 233m. There is the...More
Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine was built to honor Inari, the Shinto god of rice. The place was near to Kyoto, easily accessible by train. As such, it was always crowded with visitors. There were many "orange colored" tori gates in the spot with the names of...More
A must see if you are in Kyoto. Of course, despite the millions of tourists who visit this place on daily basis, this place offers its charm especially when you are getting away from the crowd, like hiking to the top. The view from here...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
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.
