This place is amazing. Lots and lots of red toriis all over the place, and a beautiful view of the city from up there. But be prepared to spend a couple of hours or more there: it is a HUGE area, and you will have...More

There is no shortage of shrines to visit around Kyoto, but this one was definitely our favourite. Many great photo opportunities and various routes that can be taken depending on your schedule and desire to go for a bit of a hike.

We love the beautiful structures that span throughout the whole mountaintop. Visitors are to take note that certain ceremonies conducted by the temple and statues are restricted from photograpy. We had to go quite early in the morning to avoid the crowds and for better...More

Amazing sight take your time and combine it with other temples in the same area. Go early to avoid the crowd and don’t go on weekends.

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

It is free. You can do an extra section and I think this requires a ticket but we didn’t do this. It’s a short train trip out of Kyoto
