It was nice when there is nobody around not too crowded as half of the world is on a lockdown. But as based on older photos it was very crowded.

You just have to visit Fushimi Inari while staying in Kyoto! It is so amazing and I have never experienced anything like this. Get ready for a different mountain hike! Fushimi Inari Shrine - the ultimate Torii gate experience! Fushimi Inari is the most important of several thousand shrines around Japan dedicated to Inari, the Shinto god of rice. Foxes were seen as Inari's messengers and there are statues of them everywhere! Behind the Shrine you will find the tens of thousands of famous Torii gates. All donated by private individuals and companies whose names and dates are written on the Torii gate they have donated. The Torii gate trails lead up to the sacred mountain Mount Inari and the trip up and down takes approx 2-3 hours. Make sure to have good footwear. I can highly reccomend to walk all the way to the top. What an unforgettable experience!

We came here on the afternoon of our first day in Kyoto and found this to be the most fascinating shrine that we visited during our two weeks in Japan. Dedicated to the Shinto God of Rice, Inari, the shrine features thousands of densely packed torii gates that provide a covered path up the mountainside. As we had limited time and it takes from 2-to-3 hours for a round-trip to the summit, we decided to hike for about 45 minutes and then return. A stream of tourists joined us for the climb, many hindering our pace by posing for photos, which required us to stop and wait. Some of the gates, which are vermilion with black at the bottom, proved to be in bad condition with chunks of wood missing. In a few places, a pole had been removed for restoration. Small restaurants and souvenir stands appeared occasionally outside the pathway, along with viewpoints. Signs unexpectedly warned about the danger of monkeys and boars, but we never saw any animals except a domestic cat sitting on a tree stump. Back at ground level, a wave of tourists poured toward us to begin the ascent. Many of them seemed to be with tour groups. None stopped to look at the shrine's main hall and Romon Gate here. They also ignored the statues of foxes, which reflect the belief that the animal is an Inari messenger. The shrine is always open and no admission is charged. I think early morning would be a far better time to come than the afternoon when the area has a huge tourist volume. We got here via the Keihan Main Line, which has a Fushimi-Inari station., and then walked for about four minutes to reach the shrine.
