We went in the late afternoon and there were slightly less people. My 3 year old was being bitten by mosquitos- so I would suggest pants. We didn’t do the full route as time did not permit and it would have been a big ask...More

A must-visit if it's your first time in Kyoto. For a first timer it's worth it. Even though it gets a bit crowded and hard to get a good photo.

Southern Kyoto has a reserved air. Though the Fushimi
Inari Shrine is one of Kyoto's major tourist
attractions, the surrounding nature, parks, gardens,

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
