Easily accessible by train from Kyoto. We were approached by a guide and paid her 1000 yen per person for the history, worth the yen paid. Great photo opportunities and quite peaceful considering the amount of people. Market area around Shrine is also great for...More

A must-visit if it's your first time in Kyoto. For a first timer it's worth it. Even though it gets a bit crowded and hard to get a good photo.

A shine to commercial success - it is very busy and provides great people watching as well as a good walk. The impressive orange gates are really just paid advertisements by companies - but in Japanese they look good. At the entrance to shrine the...More

Had a good walk up to the top of the shrine with many torii gates. There were restaurants after the train station before we reach the shrine. Nice place to visit while in Kyoto.

We only managed to walk part of the way, but it was a magical experience. Sturdy shoes, and some fitness required!

This place is a must see but it is extremely busy. Trying to get some good photos within 20+ people in them is a challenge to say the least. However, if you're patient you can get photos without anyone in them as we found the...More

This place is amazing. Must visit but the crowd kind of puts you off. You never get a photo like shown on many magazines etc.

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
