This giant shrine area with thousands of orange shinto gates and statues of the foxes are a must visit in Kyoto, and I have a small tip on how to avoid the crowds of tourists there. Officially the place is open till 5 pm. But in fact, it is safely accessible any time, so I recommend to come AFTER 5 pm. Firstly, the place has a great lighting around all the temples 24/7 so you will see them well even when it’s dark - I added the pics here. Secondly, it is not crowded at all in the evening, so you can enjoy your privacy on the nature side. Thirdly, you will still be able to make it to all the suggested walks. Have fun!

This is a great walk from the temples at the base of the mountain, through all the thousands of gates, right to the top of Mount Inari. It's very tourist heavy at the base with food stalls and shops. Many people around the temples. The first 3rd of the walk through the gates is very busy but then the number of people decreases the further you go. It's about 12 000 steps to the top but is well worth it for the view. The number of gates is amazing and they go right to the top and down the other side. Definitely a must do.

As usual many many people. The walk up the mountain through all the red tori gates is interesting. Dont expect to get a photo chance with just you and your partner. Too many people. The higher u go up the mountain the less people. The shrine is right at the train station. I think it is covered by the JR Pass. Average but worth a visit

After visiting Japan you will be 'castled and shrined' out, but it is one of those things you go there for even if you cannot take in all the history. People everywhere but most of the information provided by our wonderful guide was interesting. There are shrine gates (Vermilion Torii) throughout the complex. Great for photographs of the colourful structures and visitors.

The Fushimi Inari shrine visit is a unique experience and best of all it is free. See thousands of the red Tori gates, mostly donated by individuals and companies, walk up the hill and along the gates slowly and be immersed in that calm soot experience and don't forget to wear a good comfortable walking shoes.
