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.
Heard so much about the gates and were not disappointed , although the colour was more of a faded orange to me , they were still impressive. It's uphill one way but pretty gradual and the turns and curves made for an interesting walk .
We though we were early , but the crowds are always there - so be...
"beautiful temple with nice stone garden - one of our favorites"
reviewed 1 week ago by StefanS71
entry fee is 400 Yen (hojo and garden are extra, also 400). We were in Kyoto the 2nd time and haven't seen this temple the first time. What a loss. The stone garden is very beautiful and we liked it better than Ryoanji. To us, Tofukuji is definately one of the must see places in Kyoto. Our teenage kids were...
Spent the morning here strolling through the beautiful gardens, admiring the colossal pagoda and taking in the wealth of sculptures. All in all it was a great visit to very interesting site. The lotus flowers in bloom (in August) were quite something as you entered.
It's proximity to the train station (about 10-15 minute) walk was very convenient as well.
Its an interesting museum for poeple who are interested in history of Sake. We enjoy Sake so we were keen to know how it started, how you get different types and make it! The musuem is small with only two rooms. There is also a shop. At the end of looking around we were given free sake tasting of 3...
Okay, you will get frustrated lining up with 20 or more other people for half an hour. Frustrated that lots of people exit the restaurant and you are still lined up and not moving. Frustrated that the "Major Domo" at the entrance is so slack and disinterested in seating people in a timely manner. Frustrated that you can see many...
After walking that much at the inari temple, all you want is resting and having an excellent dinner. Go to this place with eye closed. Handmade udon, familly business. Good welcome very friendly and excellent set menu. Will go next time i ll be there.
"Fushimi momo yama and the surrounding sake warehouses is very nice"
reviewed 24 April 2017 by Yawara
have been many times over the years and yes the food is good but due to mass production to cater for the size and number of customers its only above average .
nice atmosphere and service
lots of sake warehouses in the area
A few minutes stroll from station and I knew when I arrived why we had gone passed another hotel to arrive at this fantastic hotel.
We arrive too early so we left our bags and went out for the day. Returning in time for a complimentary drink in the evening. Tea, coffee and iced water available in cafe all day...
the reception area of the hotel is really nice, and modern.
room itself is a little small, but it fits me and my luggage just fine. i was only there for one night, and i slept pretty well. i'm pretty sure the room was very clean, but i think the colour scheme used in the room makes it looks a...
I stayed here for a couple of nights while on a business trip. Note that this review is for the Sakura Terrace hotel next to Kujo metro station, not the Sakura Terrace The Galleries hotel, which is a little closer to Kyoto JR station.
I thought this hotel was excellent, with a comfortable room, good staff, and nice communal areas/facilities....
Almont hotel is located less than 15 mins walk from Kyoto Station. Hotel maintains a high level of cleanliness with a great team of warm friendly staff. The breakfast buffet is delicious! Combination of Japanese & Western dishes available. I like their public bath facility too. Quiet surroundings to help you have a good night's sleep.
The hotel is very close to Kyoto Train Station, 350m from Hachiko east exit.
Staff are all nice and polite, tried their best to provide help when required.
Breakfast is a buffet with Japanese and western style food, good value for money.
The room is very clean and tidy. Housekeepers have done an excellent job. Linen is changed daily, even...
