The numerous Tori gates set the scene and create a visual experience that ALMOST makes you forget that you are climbing up a mountain (a tall one too!). All the way up and some of the way down these Tori gates are lined up for your visual pleasure. There were many mini-shrines as you ascend the mountain and different spots to get a bite to eat or get something to drink. Wear comfortable shoes because you are going to get tired and check the weather.

One of Kyoto’s oldest historic landmarks!!The most important Inari Shinto shrine in Japan. It’s FREE (no charge) & so is the parking (parking attendants direct the parking). Stunning Romon Gate, Main Hall & Shrine. Be prepared for a 2-3 hr excursion just for the hike through all the toriis - climb the stairs & hike through over a thousand vermilion torii shrine gates to the summit of sacred Mt Inari. Descend back to the Fushimi Inari Taisha Shrine. We took frequent rest breaks while hiking upward. There are quite a few shops (for drinks, food, souvenirs, ice cream, etc), vending machines but maybe only 2 restroom areas along the hike. Best to get to the shrine & start the climb as early in the morning as possible...you’ll get wonderful photos before the crowds come. Majority of people wore masks for COVID precautions.

This is a Kyoto gem and a must see when visiting Kyoto. It can get really crowded (pre covid) and therefore recommend to go early.

We came back to Kyoto because we missed this on the first time. So glad we came back as it’s amazing to see in person. The trees were in bloom too. Then we stopped at Vermillion at the end of the walk for a wonderful cup of coffee

after a day in the serene temples that our friend had taken us to, the crazy crowds here when we arrived was overwhelming. we went away and had a quiet lunch off the bust streets. then back we went. muscled our way through the culinary gauntlet. mad chaos is how it felt. i had no idea when i choose to come here how busy it would be. i'd seen pics of the colourful tori and wanted to see them. we got carried along and entered the rows of tori, senbon and walked a bit and my husband said no more. i managed to step out and snap a few pics with out folks in them. and then we left. the temple sits at the base of the inari mountain and there are numerous trails and small shrines that can be explored over a couple of hours. there are 1000 tori, each one donated by a japanese business. coming very early would be the only way to fully enjoy this place for me. our last trip to japan. we were here in oct. 2019 and due to covid its taken me this long to write about our experiences.
