So many toris in a path! This is really impressive. The very long path is probably too much for most, but try to do as much as possible. There is water and tea on the path.

We had a great day at Fushimi Inari Shrine. We were a large group of teenagers and they enjoyed exploring the tracks up the mountain. All were impressed with the shear number gates. It made for some great photos and challenges. We set the challenge for members of our group to find a gate from their birth year and month.... More

This Shrine has a very interesting history. It is far from being a top touristic place, but I was told by the tax driver that it's been very popular. I There is no entrance fee and the hike is very pleasant. We only did the short hike as we were in hurry to visit the Golden temple in Kyoto on... More

Put this on the top of your "to do" list in Japan. Absolutely beautiful. Photos cannot capture it. Also try and walk all the way to the top, there is an amazing look out point with views of Kyoto.

Please plan extra time to visit Inari Shrine. It takes at least 3 hours to complete the walking track.

A very beautiful place. I have never seen anything like it! It would have been lovely to hear more about the local beliefs though. (We were just walking there with no guide.) The only bothering thing are the crowds, but as you walk higher up the mountain the fewer people there are.

The line of Torii, Shinto gates in their distinctive orange are best viewed at this shrine. The Torii at the bottom of the hill are popular, and for some bizarre reason there is a red and white striped pole that accompanies the gates where most people congregate. Go a bit higher, and there is a spiritual feel as you climb... More

The day we visited this shrine it was raining and everyone had umbrellas, which made passing the many people through the tori gates rather annoying. Even so, this place is beautiful and a must see in Kyoto.
