A walk from the car or coach park through streets selling street food which is colourful if a bit tacky. To the shrine at the top. Walk continues up but as it was raining heavily stopped at the temple. Lots of ladies wearing traditional costumes...More

Visited here in August, and got the first train from Kyoto station at about 0705. It was a good idea because you get there before the crowds. There is no admission charge for this beautiful shrine, so an early arrival means you can enjoy the...More

Have to go there early! I get up at 7 and be there at around 8, so that you can take pictures with less or no people around. I come down at around 9, already full of tourist from all over the world. Although there...More

The shrine entrance is framed by a beautiful inari gate. The entrance is FULL of tourists, so getting a clear picture at the bottom is near to impossible past 10am. The shrine at the broom of the mountain is very beautiful. There are also many...More

A little disappointed with a visit here today. Absolutely heaving with tourists and nothing like the serene unspoilt pictures we see in all the guide books! Not suitable for anyone with a pram or wheelchair as there is no ramp access anywhere! We only saw...More

Good place to visit to appreciate the local culture. Can get very very crowded with big tour groups but we noticed that the tour groups don't hike all the way up. So best to go all the way and you can get better pictures with...More

The gates here are super cool, but it's CRAZY BUSY. People are trying to get pictures with their selfie sticks everywhere. Maybe worth it early in the morning? That said, less people did the pilgrimage walk through the gates, so if you can get past...More

Incredibly crowded shrine is also very impressive with a path leading through 10,000 luminous orange gates. We went with a walking tour and the guide somehow cleverly steered us toward the opposite direction of the throng-- that is, he went down where most people go...More

We took JR train from kyoto station which took only 5 minutes to reach Fushimi inari. It's quite an interestin site. I suggest u to visit this Shrine which is stunning. Build with thousand orange pillars. The station is right infront of the shrine.

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

Yes, there are lots of tori gates even at the bottom of the mountain. It's also very near the train station.

The best way to get to the shrine is by a private taxi ride with MK Taxis straight opposite Kyoto station. It is more expensive than the public system but well worth it, especially if you are travelling with your parents. I... More

No. It is free. It's a public park / shrine. The only fee is if you decide to do a wish or prayer.
