On the way to the shrine we visited a market with very beautiful stores. at the entry to the shrine we tried our luck with "sticks of luck" ,we climbed hundreds of orange gates up to the top which was a fantastic view of Kyoto.

Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine is outstanding. There is no other place like it (that I'm aware of). It is a VERY long hike up the mountain to see its entirety, but is absolutely worth it. For an average speed walker, it probably takes about an hour and a half to reach the top. But, even if you are unable to make... More

This place can get exptremely crowded during the day. Fortunatley, like many similar must-see landmarks in Kyoto, it is open at all hours. If you visit at night, you will have it almost all to yourself, aside from a few photographers.

Easily accessible through the Fushimi Station, this place is just a short walk thereat. Good thing, it is open till night unlike other major temples in Kyoto which closes at 5:00pm. One of my top five places to visit in Kyoto. There are some shops outside the shrine one can take a look at.

I love Kyoto, the ancient Japan's capital city in the old time. The city is full of historical landmarks that attract me to explore and to experience. I also love walking around the city, and this place is worth for seeing and hiking. And of course, for those who love taking photos - selfies, smartphone photo or professional photos, you... More

This temple is worth visiting if you want to have a quick taste of one of the iconic shinto temples in Kyoto. It is less than 15min from Kyoto station and easily accessible by the JR train line, which is complimentary for JR Pass holders. A bonus to visit Fushimi Inari-taisha shrine is that entry is free, as compared to... More

We rode bikes to Fushimi and then we walked the whole track. It was worth every moment. Considering it is free it is a must do experience while in Kyoto. Recommend wearing comfortable shoes and clothes and be somewhat fit because you climb a lot of stairs if you decide to do the whole track. It is definitely worth it.... More

This shrine is well maintained and is visited by many school children as well as tourists. The history of the gates, traditional practices such as hand washing, making donations as well as Japanese in traditional dress can always be enjoyed here

Just a 3 minute train ride from Kyoto station, you get off and are immediately confronted with the first vermilion torii or entrance gate of the temple. There are lots of street vendors worth checking out either before or after your climb up the sacred mountain selling everything from souvenirs to food. The souvenirs get more expensive the further you... More

Definitely worth the visit and hike. Obviously great photo opportunity; for those who love selfies, good luck :D! The first observation point is a stunning view, the top was well, somewhat underwhelming. A cool fox (or cat) shrine awaits you at the top. I recommend sitting quietly in front of the shrine for a few moments to really appreciate the... More

Staying in Southern Kyoto

Neighborhood Profile
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.
