Words cannot describe the experience of walking up the mountain path in the tunnels described by the red gates and stopping at ancient shrines along the way: you have to be there! This is a living shrine and amongst the hordes of turists there are many faithfull who come to perform offerings and pray. An elevating experience...

The place is great. Unlike the other historical/cultural attractions I wanted to visit in Kyoto, Fushimi Inari Shrine was the only one that stays open into the night (regardless of season/light-up events). At night, the main torii pathways are lit so even though it was dark, I could still easily find my way around, and the view from the lookout... More

This place is a really amazing experience, I recommend visiting late afternoon so you can watch the sunset and then come back down at twilight - you can then see a different side to the place when it's dark and all the beautiful lanterns come on!

This place is amazing! We had such a great time in Fushimi Inari Shrine. The climb was not so tiring at all because our eyes were mesmerized by the never-ending vermillion tori gates. Don't forget to take beautiful photos along the way.

This place is free and different from most shrines in Japan. It is a very cool site. There are hundreds of gates. If you climb up for about an hour, you get a nice view of the city, but you don't have to climb to see the gates. After the first 20, you get the idea.

One of the most famous attractions in Japan. The vast network of Tor-ii Gates is a marvelous piece of art. We tried going all the way up to the summit but it was a long way up. Absolutely a must visit.

Simply astonishing. I hiked the entire Shrine and around every corner I was amazed at the beauty. Consider this a must do if you are in the area. Plan on about 3-4 hours.
