There are many shrines in Japan, but this is arguably one of the most iconic ones, meaning that there are a lot of tourists visiting this place every day. It will be hard to shoot the ideal picture with so many people around and it...More
I woke at 5am and arrived on the first train. There were a dozen or so people making their way in at the same time, but we all had our own space. I had around 15 mins in a spot before being disturbed by a...More
Besides the obvious Instagram shots , it is also exceptionally beautiful , the surrounding trees and land is also really beautiful. It’s actually quite a large place , Walk to the top takes around 2-3 hours return depending on how fast you go but you...More
So worth getting the train there early, between 7-8am so you can beat the crowds. We loved the place. Wear good shoes and when you get up the main viewing point before the top loop, turn left as this is the less steep option of...More
This Shintu Shrine is a UNESCO World Heritage, that offers the visitor to see and feel the life of the people in this Area during the Edo Period when Kyoto was the Capital City of Japan. Don’t miss to put on a kimono that you...More
There isn't much that hasn't been said already about Fushimi Inari but it really is a beautiful and mystical place. I recommend going early in the morning or late in the afternoon as the crowds are very large.

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.

I did a one day tour with Taka san but spent several days in Kyoto, I'm not 100% sure if they would pick up from Osaka but if not they would certainly pick you up from any Kyoto train station. My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed it and 100% felt it was worth teh money, especially if you're interested in the cultural side of Japan. We only wished we'd done it earlier in our itinerary (we spent a month in Japan and Kyoto was the last place we visited). We learnt alot about the culture and the temples we visited that you couldn't google and would otherwise entirely miss out on. In a 4 hour private car tour we went to 3 temples and saw some of the country/local cuisine and Taka dropped us off at the Fushimi Inari Shrine which we were glad we ended on since it's enormous- too big to do it all in a private tour.
We went through this company
privatetour-kyoto and again our guide was Taka although I think all the guides there are pretty good.
