First things first, this is not the Kyoto Inari shrine of the same name. This one lies in Kawasaki, Kanagawa Prefecture, near Shin-Maruko station. Nonetheless its a quiet gem near a bustling shopping street, less than 10 minutes away from the mall at Musashi Kosugi, so definitely convenient for giving it a visit! The Shrine is large with many colorful art pieces, including mt. Fuji and foxes. They also have english translations for their historical information! For goshuin collectors, it only has glue in goshuin, despite that it is still very gorgeous, staff was nice and you could see from interactions with locals that this is a beloved shrine! Would recommend this to anyone who wants a quieter shrine to visit!

I saw pictures of this place a while ago and wanted to see it person. It's amazing to see in person. It's definitely different from the other temples/shrines. It does get a little crowded though. We waited till later in the afternoon when many of the tour groups have left.

I definitely understand the hype about this shrine - It was beautiful! we went on a day where it was snowing heavily and it made the experience even more magical for us. Easily my favourite thing I managed to do in Kyoto.

I would return to this place but would do two things differently: I would be prepared to sweat/ work out, and I would cover every inch of skin I had! The walk through the shrine, while beautiful, is certainly a hike. Be prepared (who doesn't love a good morning workout). We didn't go to the top (see the part where I was unprepared) however if going back, I definitely would. It was not overly crowded; however the mosquitoes were out and in full numbers! I opted for shorts (as the humidity was unbearable) but ended up getting 15-20 bites all over my legs! yikes! No matter how hot it is (sorry I am not used to humidity), cover up. And if possible, go early! As it is with most things in life, it is stunning, and at its best when left to its solitary grandeur.

A definite must-visit for any tourist. Been here a couple times and yes in both instances, the place is packed with visitors. Although in my opinion, it was not a major hindrance in getting around the area. Tried climbing the mountain with beautifully lined up torii gates. Walking up the trail with the contrasting color of the torii gates and the surrounding forest is very serene. It took us several hours going up and down the peak. There is a sort of resting area half way through the climb with a beautiful view of the ground and the sunset. If you get thirsty, there are some vendo machines available. I suggest though for you to bring your own bottled water.

There are several food stalls and souvenir shops near the entrance of the shrine. We rewarded ourselves with the warm, delicious takoyaki after the tiring walk.

Currently on travel in Japan having spent 12 days in Tokyo and Kyoto so far I must say this is so far the best site we visited. Really beautiful scenery complimented by literally thousands of tori gates large, medium and small. The route to the top of the mountain is highly recommended. Most tourists do not get that far, but although the number of tori gates gets lower the farther you get, the scenery is the best near the top of the hill. There is hardly any view at the very top, but that did not ruin the trip for me. We already got that at the monkey park/hill. Do not forget to douse yourself in mosquito deterrent. I forgot to use it and that's the only thing I regret about my trip there. Eaten alive is the phrase that covers it all....

This was the first Shrine I visited in Japan many many years ago.
Still the same bit now a few kiosks on the property.
Actually went back with my same friends whose children are now all adults done with there own children.
Relaxing and happy spot for me.
Lots of things to do in the surrounding areas.

definitely worth the visit but bare in mind it is very touristy, great foot op moments and you do not need a guide to visit here.

Wow, what an experience. This shrine is so beautiful with literally thousands of bright orange tori gates that wind through the pretty trees. Provides some lovely shade and respite from the hot sun. Plenty of small shrines along the way which provide an interesting focus point. This shrine is right at the exit of the JR Inari railway station so you can't miss it. I would rate this as one of the best I have experienced in Japan.
