Its free Colourful, magical and serene no matter what time of year you go. The lower level may be crowded with students and tourists alike but the crowds dwindle as you go up the hill. It is one temple in Kyoto I return to every time, and I never get tired of taking photos of this wonderful place

One of the oldest Shinto shines in Kyoto. Truly worth the time it takes to climb and do the full loop. Ensure you wear decent walking shoes. We only had flip flops and with the heat and sweat it was very slippery (our shoes not the path lol) We were there in summer, so the heat was occasionally overwhelming but... More

My friend and I did not know how far away the top was and kept on walking until we reached the top - which was apparently 2 hours! Many people had stopped walking by now and there were better photo opportunities the higher you went! As you go up there are many places to stop for refreshments and many toilets.... More

Our family group visited the temple in October 2013. It was a perfect day and we enjoyed the amazing view of so many torii (the red gates). We tried counting the number of fox statues but gave up. The walk was a bit challenging, but frequent places to stop and enjoy the views made it easier. We stopped at one... More

It's far more touristy than you're expecting and with a vending machine every 50 metres, a little less 'sacred' and more 'commercial'. The walk to the top is well signposted but definitely for the fully mobile.

Should really visit if your in Kyoto. But beware of the hike it goes around the mountain and up! Took us almost 2 hours of intense hiking. Be sure to wear walking shoes and bottle of water!! And when u are trekking through there are water fountains use to wash hands, face and rinse mouth.

Fushiim Inari Shrine is a must visit place if you are touring Kyoto. However you got to take note that a very long walking is needed to enjoy the beauty of this attraction. You got to go all the way up the to site top to get a great view of Kyoto city especially for sunset (please see my photo... More
