I got to the bottom just before sunrise. The light was just getting good for some great pictures. It's a beautiful place to have a walk around when it's peaceful. There are lots of gates and lots of picture opportunities so don't just obsess over...More

Go early as this is one of those attractions that gets very crowded since it's free. And wear comfy shoes! It's a LOT of steps.

This is another must go site for tourists. Be mesmerised by the numerous gates lining up the pathway to the top of the mountain. Stop by for some shrines along the way. Would recommend coming at night for a different vibe to the place. Viewing...More

It’s quite a walk to the top and alot of steps (62 flights according to my watch). It was fascinating to find out how the Shinto and Buddhism work together thanks to a guide we met. There is not really a view at the top...More

Stunning. First time we went during the day, allowing for more hiking up through the torii. Second time was on New Year's Eve so there was a great set-up of food vendors on the approach to the temple. Not sure which was my favorite visit.

A very impressive shrine but please be prepared to walk/hike. The 1000s of gates set this shrine apart from the rest in Japan and is a very popular tourist destination. Great photos and a beautiful walk up and down a small mountain. Very pleasant experience...More

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

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
