Neighborhood: 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 mountain's off-set paths aren't frequented by tourists, and the mountain's serenity can be enjoyed at a leisurely pace. Southern Kyoto is the place to enjoy being outside, and to pay your respects to the ancient architecture and gods of the land that are celebrated here.

It's the site of the original Fushimi Castle (thus the picture) which replica is located half a mile from the tomb. It can be seen from a distance. The nearest JR station is Fushimi Momoyama.

"In the evening of September 13, 1912, a gold leaf and lacquer cart hauled by a team of oxen left the Imperial Palace in Tokyo. People were carrying banners, torches and weapons and beating drums and gongs. Just after midnight a special train left Tokyo Station bound for the old Imperial capital of Kyoto. People gathered at the main stations along the way and bowed in reverence, for on board was the coffin of Emperor Meiji, bound for Fushimi Momoyama no Misasagi in Kyoto"
The emperor's body was interred the next day in the Fushimi Momoyama Tomb. There is a great natural beauty at this place, and according to experts, this may have been the Emperor's own wish for his last resting place. The hills here are quiet and green, the view is just wonderful. Many people were here, some walking, some sitting and chatting to others. We overheard one old man tell his friend that when he was young he could walk up the steps in no time, but today he is not so fast! Emperor Meiji has a beautiful resting place! Worth the walk to appreciate the park, the well kept gardens and the view, not to mention the peaceful feeling gazing on the Tomb of an Emperor!

Fushimi Momoyamaryo, the mausoleum of the Emperor Meiji, is on a small hill and surrounded by trees. It is a good place for contemplation.

Very mystic area! Emperor Meiji are enshrined there. Hard to reach there. You have to walk through a long slope or go up a steep stairs. But the scenery from the shrine is just fantastic.

There is nothing to see except a run-of-the-mill Torii gate and some sparsely planted bushes.

This is not a "tourist" site so much as one of several places were Emperor Meiji's ashes are enshrined.

The tomb of the emperor is off limits to the public so the only thing to do here is climb the 220 stairs in front of the Torii gate.

Also, there is no adjacent transportation link and it is set in a "Forest" on top of a hill so if you do visit, wear sneakers.
