This place was Packed, even on a rainy day. But if you continue to climb, the crowd dwindles and you can enjoy the walk. We didnt quite it to the top as Hubby had a bad knee, Plus I was eaten alive by Mozzies. Make...More
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.
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
One of the most amazing places to visit in Japan. The walk is long but worth it. We reached very late and my mother could walk the whole distance but have heard the view from the top is amazing. A must visit place of avid...More

If you come to this region and don't visit the Shrine you are missing out on an amazing site!
This Shinto Shrine has rows and rows of orange colored gates are placed to commorate individuals.

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.
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 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.

15 months baby can walk...the steps are not steep. I would also bring a carrier just in case the baby needs some rest. However, at this time of the year in summer, I wouldn’t recommend bringing a young kid with you. It is... More
15 months baby can walk...the steps are not steep. I would also bring a carrier just in case the baby needs some rest. However, at this time of the year in summer, I wouldn’t recommend bringing a young kid with you. It is VERY hot and humid.
