Such a beautiful place. Having grown up in Japan, I've always wanted to go here and it was well worth it. However, the shops were either closed, had slow service or were very rude. If you're going, I would recommend just going to the big torii and small torii (maybe 20-30 minutes). When we went, we decided to go up... More

What a cool site! We went in the rain from the typhoon and it was still an amazing experience. There were lots of people at the lower levels so hard to get a photo without a bunch of people in it. The site was amazing though and well worth it. It was very easy to get to from Kyoto station... More

Kyoto is full of attractions but the two top must see are the golden temple and the Inari Shrine. The later was nominated the most visited site in the world this year. Visiting Inari Shrine is beautiful after sun set and to go around the site would take 2 hours of walking. Totally different from any shrine you have ever... More

Here's my advice. Go. Don't miss it. But do go beyond the intensely busy bit within the 15 minute walk. Do have plenty of water, especially if like us you go in the humidity of June. Pace yourself. There are atleast 2 Japanese tea houses on the higher slopes. Stop and enjoy the lovely and the breeze. It is a... More

doesn't need much time to see, liked that. Disliked the hike in the summer heat. It;s not far or steep, but the forest stops and breeze. Very photogenic.
