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

First you have to walk 10 min from train station. You are surrounded by a lot of typical japanese souvenir and food shops. Then you walk through the Shrine. Its very crowdy and full of tourists but a must see in Japan.

If you want to feel Japanese culture & heritege, this is a must-visit spot. Although it's a very long way to the top (I also did not get to the top), but the beauty of this place has already been seen from the moment you walk in. My father who hate the long walk also still recommend this place to... More

This is somewhere not to be missed on any visit to Kyoto. A beautiful, colourful and fascinating shrine set on a hillside overlooking the city, a short train ride away. It is, however, very very busy, so patience is required to get the perfect photo. Arriving early or late is probably the best solution. Don't underestimate the amount of uphill... More

Visiting this temple in the afternoon time. Just take train and stop at Fushimi Inari station then walk around 500m. The temple have iconic gate and it is a long gate which is for religion ceremony.

If you are into street food, make sure you keep an empty stomach when coming to this shrine. On the way to this shrine there are a heap of food stalls all line up just as you are approaching the entrance. From bacon wrapped sushi rice to pan fried steak tofu to ice creams, tako yaki, giant crab sticks and... More

We spent an afternoon walking through the temple and gates. This was a real highlight. The bamboo here is as good in Arashiyama. Definitely recommend.

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.
