We’ve visited at night (arrived on train at 22:20 and left on 00:07, which was the last one). The experience was very intense with a very few people around, the darkness, noises and relatively cool weather. We’ve climbed to the top of the mountain and...More

Really beautiful place to see at least one time in his life. I recommend to do it by 17h in summer to avoid flow of tourist. And get lost in every corner. Take the time to feel the energy of this place when it’s calm.

There is no doubt the tori gates are a photographer's dream but the day we visited it was exceptionally crowded. Trying to get up the narrow street to the entrance involved a lot of jostling. The crowds made it difficult to get nice crowds. While...More

This activity is for persons with good health since you have to climb a lot of stairs. I recommend going very early or late afternoon, you will find at this times less tourists and also less hear if you are visiting during summer.

This was my second visit to the shrine and it was every bit as beautiful as I remembered it from 2000 when I was here the first time. There is something magical about walking and climbing underneath all the red tori gates. Reaching the top...More

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

You don’t need to wear pants . Shorts are perfectly acceptable but I would have bug spray on hand if you venture into any wooded areas . Hope that helps.

Lots of steps but otherwise not hard. If it's not too crowded you can take your time. Also there are a few turn outs if you don't want to do the whole thing.
