This shrine is obviously very popular with tourists given the numbers visiting the Shrine on a summers Wednesday morning. Very easy to find once you get off the train. Either from JR Nara Station or Fushimi Inari Station. Basically next to each other with the...More

This was bigger than expected and wonderful to see this remarkable landmark. It was very crowded at mid day and would recommend to go earlier in the day.

Loved the place as it was very beautiful. Went to rent a kimono nearby and took lots of pictures as the whole place is really nice. Alot of tourist but i guess it is expected to be crowded.

We had a lovely visit here. The gates are stunning. In the summer heat, it was shadier and cooler than most of our other stops. It was one of my favorite places in Kyoto. Be prepared for a lot of walking and walking up hills...More

It is a magical place, despite the fact that there are lot of tourists, you can hike up and slowly get away from them to get some tranquility and zen moment. A must see in Kyoto

Not as impressive in person, I liked photos better, maybe because of the heat. Visited August 2018 with small kids.

Start early in the morning and go straight to the top! Fewer tourists there and if you want to take the bamboo route, you’ll stop by tons of hidden shrines along the way!

In my opinion, it was amazing to witness however be warned that these beautiful arches continue up the mountain for a few miles. We completed about 1500M, took some pictures and turned around, so unfortunately I cant tell you what was waiting at the top.

It felt like we were in sauna but we made it. It is breathtakingly beautiful how the path to the top is built with torii gates and there are many stores offering something to drink and eat to help people climb. I believe it took...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

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.
