Stunning!

Easy to get to by JR train from Kyoto. For me, this was the visually most stunning site I saw in the entire trip.

Very beautifull shrine in Kyoto. The environment, the history and the shrines make the setting complete. Don't forget to walk up the path uphill. Even when you're not going to the top; it's getting much more quiet and will bring up the atmosphere which belongs to this historical place.

This is perhaps my favorite shrine in Kyoto. It is 1001 orange shrine gates after another in a long walk up and down the mountain. You can go all the way a take a shortcut halfways. I took the shortcut, but still I spend more than half an hour walking/running the route. It is a beautiful and mentally relaxing walk.... More

The temple is not much interesting, but the way though the red toris is spectacular (although is often full of people). Lots of nice pictures to take!! A lot of shops around the temple.

We stopped at Fushimi Inari on our way back from Nara to Kyoto. It is a beautiful place especially at sunset (best moment to take golden pictures and deal with the heat). A piece of advice: do not the local train from Nara as it takes for ever. Instead you want to take the express train from Nara to Uji... More

Went during the Sakura season and went early in the morning to beat the crowd. The shrine is located a few steps right in front of the JR Inari Station (look for the large red Torri Gate as indicator to the entrance). The lined Torri gates were beautiful and is a good place to take beautiful photography. If you are... More

Such an amazing experience! The shrine is beautiful and it was great to see the locals come in for their afternoon prayer.

The bright orange paint was made more obvious under the scorching sun and on the uneven walking path when no one is in sight, snap a picture, as fast as you can before an arm of leg or even a strand of hair belonging to another visitor ruins the picture! The scenic place which allows to see almost the whole... More

The Fushimi Inari Shrine was quite beautiful but a bit of a hike! Definitely wear good shoes, light breathable (quick drying) clothes, bring lots of water and wear mosquito repellent. It took us about 45 minutes to get to the top. The top was a bit underwhelming but the views while climbing were better. We also found the colored maps... More

oh my goodness it was fabulous. Very crowded at the start but take heart and continue as a lot of people only walk the first little bit, after that the people thin out. The whole walk took us 1 1/2hrs. Brilliant. Dont start taking photos at the beginning...wait a while

Staying in Southern Kyoto

Neighborhood Profile
Southern Kyoto
Southern Kyoto has a reserved air. Though the Fushimi Inari Shrine is one of Kyoto's major tourist attractions, the surrounding nature, parks, gardens, temples, and shrines provide less-visited spaces for strolling and reflection. The Fushimi Inari Shrine itself is made up of 32,000 sub-shrines, and the mountain they are dotted across beckons hikers, picnickers, and lovers of the outdoors. Many of the mountain's off-set paths aren't frequented by tourists, and the mountain's serenity can be enjoyed at a leisurely pace. Southern Kyoto is the place to enjoy being outside, and to pay your respects to the ancient architecture and gods of the land that are celebrated here.
