Well worth a visit the red tori gates make it different to other shrines, good experience to walk through though some area had been damaged and was inaccessible with the recent storm weather. Enjoyed this shrine visit so much as actually saw some kind of...More

There's a reason this is one of the most popular spots in Kyoto: This shrine is the most engaging of the 2000+ in the area. You can see the major portions in less than an hour, or take it in leisurely in 2-4 hours. Pros:...More

I'm not usually a great fan of temples, but I've wanted to visit this one for a long time as I missed it last time I was in Kyoto. And it really did not disappoint. It will remain a very good tranquil memory

Stunning shrine that features many orange gates- it’s a very busy place tho and you’ll climb a fair bit to get a quiet spot! Go behind station 7 on the climb to get Kyoto city views as no real views at the top.

Felt so peaceful, must go early morning. Hundreds of Tori gates just keep walking. Right outside of the Fushimi Inari JR station. One of the must visit places in Kyoto.

Torii gates integrated with nature. A beautiful climb to the top. To avoid the crowd, we arrived before 8am and headed straight to the gates and bypass the main temple. As we were on our ascent, there are folks already finished. Advice is to go...More

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
