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
I went to the Fushimi Inari taisha Shrine for the third time and it was as nice as the first time. The whole area have something magical. It’s just a 15 minute train ride from Kyoto station. When you arrived at the Inari station there...More
I had heard about the shrine from a friend at work as well as reading the TA reviews, so decided to go.

Easily accessible by train from Kyoto. We were approached by a guide and paid her 1000 yen per person for the history, worth the yen paid. Great photo opportunities and quite peaceful considering the amount of people. Market area around Shrine is also great for...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.
