Tip: For the best pictures either come earlier in the morning, or later in the afternoon. For the best experience, walk to the higher section. The most famous shrine in Kyoto

We did enjoy our morning here however we didn't make it to the top as it was quite a climb. It's very crowded at the lower levels through the Tory gates however the crowds thin out as you climb up higher, We did make it about half way to be rewarded with a great view of the city below.

One of my favourite shrines in Japan! If you like tori gates then this is your shrine!!! A lot of climbing so allow time and if you are already tired from a day in Kyoto you will be more so! Local train from Kyoto stn.

Fushimi Inari is a shrine in Kyoto, Japan with thousands of vermilion torii gates stretching as far as the eye can see. It's really beautiful, peaceful and breathtaking.

Be prepared for a lot of walking along trails to reach the top. But the view is excellent. And the pillars are uniquely beautiful.

Wall all the way round; when you get to the choice (where the small restaurants gather) go to the right, not left, as it's less arduous a climb. The higher you go the fewer people. After the visit, stroll around the town.

Allow at least 2 hours . Can be physically demanding to pass through all the orange pillars big and small . Those pillars are all from donations Interesting climb A lot of tourist . Worthwhile a visit in Kyoto

Kyoto is generally a truly beautiful place, but we really like it here, the red torii gates are really impressive! It is easy to get to as it is a local train ride from the train station (I think it is only one stop)
