This is one of Kyoto, if not the Japan's, most recognizable landmark, so it is a must visit destination for any traveler to Kyoto. But be warned, this is not going to be a walk in the park. The Inari Shrine covers the whole hill so climbing up can be exhausting and strenuous if your not physically fit. Taking photos... More

Even on a rainy day, this place was extremely crowded. The views of the gardens were lovely, and there were plenty of places to take pictures. My husband and I did find a small side trail (outside of the gates) that was less crowded. This is a neat place to say you visited because it is so famous. There are... More

This was our favorite shrine out of all the ones we went to. Walking through the Tori Gates was just so unique. If there was only one shrine with Japanese Gardens I might feel differently, but Fushimi Inari was a place like no other!!

First thing you'll see is a walking path full with torii gates, it's different than the other shrine I visited in Japan and a good object to take photo. It will be very crowded at the bottom of the shrine, so make sure you come early if you want to take picture at the bottom of the shrine. My friend... More

The torii gates and trails go uphill for quite a distance. We spent about 90 minutes here and it was enough to go through many of the gates. We would have needed several hours to go to the top. This was our top free attraction in Kyoto.

If you have one or two days in kyoto I advice you to visit this and the kinkaku ji. The fushimi inari (the thousand gates) gives a different architectural feeling. Each gate has the name of the owner, if u want a gate u can buy one, our tour guide said. I love the idea of the contrast between nature... More

Loved the stairs even though I didn't make it to the very top. As with everyone else, I disliked the amount of people...but of course I was a contributing factor as well, so it was pleasant in the end.

We went there after six in the evening and was lucky to have a nice walk without so many people to bump. Series of brightly painted pillars were extraordinary. The place is extremely large and you might need a day to finish the whole course. You have to be prepared when you visit as it is really exhausting to climb... More

2 stops from the main station on the local line, this is well worth visiting with its 1,000 Tori gates and beautiful garden

We really enjoyed this place. It was quite crowded but the crowds thinned out as we climbed up a little. The shrine buildings at the bottom of the mountain (including the main gate) are nice but it is the tunnels of gates further up that really take the breath away. This place seems to be always open and free to... More
