From the station to the place, there are many feature food stalls along the street that makes ppl excited. Afterwards, reached to the shrine,you would go through over thousands of the Torii s ,with bright orange red colour, which was built by prayers. Very amazing and a must-go place

Please note, it's great for photos, but walk all the way tot he top. At the bottom, the place is swarming with tourists, and you can't get the iconic shots of empty pathways surrounded by gates - by the top, the crowd has thinned massively and it's much easier. Fortunately, (given the sketchy signage), whichever way you go eventually gets... More

Nice place, a bit crowded when I was in April. Take something to eat and drink with you. The stairs are a bit step and at that time some were wet from a river nearby. The trail is in circle so you do not have to come back on the same path.

Very nice walk to the top, about 4 km. You'll get pictures without hordes of people the higher you climb. It took me about two hours round trip. There are little places to get stuff to eat and drink as you are climbing. At the bottom of the shrine are lots of food vendors. I took the train from downtown... More

Beautiful shrine. I know people recommend going early to beat crowds but shrine is open 24 hours and sections of it are lit up at night which makes it very spooky and atmospheric as well as being much quieter. Yeah your photos won't be as good but I think it's worth it to appreciate it in the evening without all... More

Love to visit Fushimi Inari shrine - this is a great location for good vacation photos. Walking through the torii gates is magical.

This was on all the guides to visit - and certainly does not disappoint. Walking up to the summit through the senbon torii is truly spectacular. The steps are not arduous, and are broken at intervals by convenient shops and resting points with vending machines. However, we visited during late November, and the place was packed to the brim with... More

If you plan to take in the Inari Shrine, do it in the morning as you will then allow yourself ample time to walk up to the mountain top and to eat at one of the many little restaurants along the way. Often while traveling with a group, which is always challenging in many ways, time becomes a scarce commodity.... More

Some good hiking required if you want to complete the entire trail but totally worth it. Wearing good shoes will help.

We went when it was pouring down with rain, really heavy and got totally soaked even with a rainmac and an umbrella. It was perfect. Misty surroundings, very mystical and beautiful. Worth the 4km (I think) hike up lots of stairs, walking through the orangey-red Torii Gates. A must-do if you're in Kyoto. The Inari sushi sold at the cafe/restaurant... More

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.
