beautiful place and it is located right next to the train station. No wonder it is voted as the no1 place to go by Trip Advisor. Must go if you only have one day in Kyoto

Many temples and shrines are similar not just in kyoto but overall. This was very different as not only was it a shrine but also the extremely famous tori gates along a nice hike. Would recommend going on a weekday if possible to miss the crowds and get better pictures, because everyone is trying to get the same pictures without... More

We went to the Fushimi Inari Shrine on a semi wet day, so it wasn't as crowded. The cool weather helped in our trek up but we did not go all the way to the top. On the way down, we took a slightly different path and chanced upon the most beautiful area with the autumn colours in full bloom.... More

This place was pretty amazing. It is obviously a must see. THe climb to the top was much longer and more strenuous than we expected. Also it was very very crowded, though the grounds were big enough that you could seek out some paths that you would have mostly to yourself.

It's a beautiful place because of the "Inari". Surprisingly not far away from Kyoto downtown, easy to get there. Noticed there is a hiking route after arrived the temple, I think if you have time, trying to hiking, you can see more Inari, and feel the different, quiet environment surroundings. Sometimes, it's cold and foggy, sometimes you just can see... More

The thousands of bright orange tori that wend their way up the mountain in vermilion tunnels. The fox statues were charming, with their little red bibs, and keys to the granary between their teeth.

So many photos taken, with different angles of light. This was a great afternoon and great exercise to the top and back via the forest circuit. Lots of places to stop and check out along the way, e.g. cemetaries. Many sidetracks you could get lost on, sort of.

While this site is beautiful and the view from the middle/top is great, you need to be prepared to walk and walk especially uphill. The scale of the maps is completely inaccurate as you will have no idea when you will hit the next checkpoint. Also, when you get to the middle/top, you will have a great view of Kyoto,... More

We started the walk at around sunset. at the beginning many tourists on the path, making it challenging to take pictures. After about 15mins of walking, the sun has set and most area is well lit by lanterns, and soon was only us and a handful of Japanese visitors. All shops were closed by then, and some cats roaming around... More

Its just a 2 stop from Kyoto station. We went here in our very last hour in our 1 day trip to Kyoto. A perfect location to sum up our Kyoto visit. Its easy to reach and the station is quite ancient for our standard to represent old Japan. In fact, the main road for this famous spot is not... More
