Nice walk under all those shrines. If you go early in the morning, it's not so crowded yet. It's quite a tough climb to the top, which has no viewpoint (bit disappointing), but still a beautiful walk.

Not for the feint-hearted this one, a four hour epic to the top and back. Plenty of places to rest, but please buy some water before you go in at the supermarket at the bottom as it does get more expensive as you climb. On a hot day you can sweat profusely, a lot of steps to climb, but a... More

There was much hype over the shrine and I made it a must visit on my trip to Kyoto. No regrets, it is beautiful and amazing. Must visit when in Kyoto.

Walk along the lined up toriis (engraved with names of donors who maintain the shrine) and take one of the most famous tourist photos of Kyoto! Inari is the God of rice and favorite of businessmen, pray for good fortune!!!

Be prepared for a lot of stair climbing and being surrounded by international tourists. It was beautiful but heavily commercialized. Frankly, I was not terribly impressed. And eating pulverized octopus from one of the many food stands lining the walkway inside the shrine area ultimately did not sit well with me - shocker, I know 🤔

On a very warm September morning we decided to walk up the mountain from the Fushimi Inari shrine through the red gates to the top of the mountain. Lots of people stopping and taking photos right at the beginning despite the early time so don't worry too much about getting photos straight up. Make sure you have good walking shoes... More

We have learnt that this place is apparently the most visited attraction in the whole world! We were there in the rain. Although it may sound sad, it really had it advantage - there were far less people, and we were able to see (and take picture) of places much easier. The place is beautiful, and one would certainly benefit... More

I'm Japanese. I'm proud of this shrine. I went to this mountain yesterday to pray & say thank you to God, Fushimi-Oinari-san. This is head shrine of the whole of Oinari-san in Japan. Because this time last year, I came there and prayed for my dad who was suffering from lang cancer and now his cancer has gone. Foreign guy's... 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.
