It is nice to walk around the tori when there are so many of them but it kind of becomes redundant as you climb up. Nonetheless, I believe it is definitely worth going to because it is very beautiful a lots of great pictures can be taken ;)

Definitely worth seeing but be aware that you will be push by hundreds of tourists and it's almost impossible to get a picture without a few people. The hugger you climb the better and less crowded it gets.

Themple is located nereby the centre of Kyoto. The first place that was too crouded with tourists, but you can easely loosexthem when you walk the route of 1000 tories all the wat up the mountain. Its worth doing it. You have beautiful vieuws and nice smaller shrines on your way. We walked on a very hot day, so take... More

one of my favorites shrines in whole of Japan - this place is huge and has many buildings with wonderful architecture. Also, the 100s of toris are a beautiful sight. Definitely a must-see place!

Great at sunset, however still busy. Be sure to wear long pants or bring insect repellent as there are many mosquitos. Also you can buy a souvenir shrine to take home- kids loved it!

I was surprised the kids could make it all the way up the shrine. They really enjoyed it, which we were really happy about, and it was great exercise for them!

This shrine was absolutely amazing and beautiful. One of the "must see"s of Japan! This shrine was in the movie Memoirs of a Geisha. And the tori Gates are just absolutely beautiful!

This spot is really a must experience of you are in Kyoto. You can easily reach it by train at the homonymous station. If you are planning to visit Japan in summer, I warmly suggest to go to Fushimi Inari in the early morning (I went at 6.30 to avoid the hot weather and the crowd). This attraction is always... More

We went all the way up and back. There were a *lot* of people and since we went through all our water on the way up found that the price of bottles goes up as you get higher. But it's a nice walk - we had allocated about 2 hours for it and it was insufficient. If you're doing the... More

This temple is located nearby Kyoto centre and it is extremely spectacular with 1000 tories all along the way. Besides even in Summer it allows you to walk under the shadow of the tories. The temple is big enough to avoid the crowds from time to time, and it has lots of shrines along the way.

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.
