Visited early morning during early spring. Entrance of shrine is just opposite the train station. Enjoyed the stroll up under columns of red torii gates until midway. Tried Hiroshima otokonomiyaki at one of the stalls, yummy.

easy to locate, very near train station. Lots of souvenir and food shops on the way but as you head your way up the shrine and into the mountain, you can be at peace with nature

If your favourite colour is orange (the colour of joy) then you are in for a treat. This area is really memorable because you don't see thousands upon thousands of torii gates winding through a beautiful canopy of green everyday. March is quite low for crowds so it wasn't overly busy. It's only a five minute ride from Kyoto station.... More

Very easy to get to, train station almost in front of shrine. Great atmosphere its a bit of a hike and some up hill, if you have mobility problems maybe not go for the whole circuit, you can do it as a loop and end up back at start of trip. It does get very busy do go early, I'm... More

I took the train early from central Kyoto, because all major attractions are away from center, which is great, since organizing a trip is extremely easy. I was there around 9 am just in front of the train station you walk 100 meters and started walking I thought will be just a walk but turn out to be the most... More

I join the reviewers who describe this as a must-see when visiting Kyoto. The phrase awe-inspiring is overused, but it applies here. The site is quickly reached on the JR local trains that go on to Nara. The key to enjoying it is to time your visit carefully. I chose to stop here on the way back from Nara, and... More

Well Fushimi Inari is a tourist hot spot lined with probably thousands of torii gates. Was my second time there but nevertheless still a good place to visit. It was also where they filmed a scene for "Memoirs of the Geisha". Climbing up is a good exercise, somewhere halfway up or was it a quarter left, you get a really... More

So many little shrines to see here, but very little explanations in English on who each of the shrines are dedicated to. Someone who knows more about religions in Japan will benefit more. For those who don't, its a great mountain walk with plenty of beautiful shrines to take pictures of. At the entrance you may see performances of rites... More

I felt so relaxed when I went to Fushimi Inari Shrine. You will totally appreciate nature while walking up to the top. It was just one of a kind.

Only having two days in Kyoto, this was on the top of my list and did not disappoint! Couldn't believe the number of shrines there were amongst the very pretty scenery. Would have liked to send the day there as there is a lot to explore and a fair walk to the top. A must see!
