This very important shrine lies just south of the main Kyoto train station. It was dedicated to the god of rice and sake in the eighth century, but now is mainly patronized for intercession in business matters. The monstrous gate guards a complex of several...More

Great Place, aside from the fact that they painted everything orange. But the place makes you feel your in old japan. we went here on a rainy day. But the experience was great. next time well go straight to the mountain

Loved the many Tori gates over the path/steps, but oh my goodness, it's a long hike. We walked for 2 hours upwards and were not even half way! Bring your stamina to this amazing place. Well worth the visit to go even a short way...More

it was a long walk but it was all so worth it. be there early to avoid the crowd. the crown keeps streaming in making it difficult to take a clear and nice photo of the shrine. this is one of my favourite landmark.

This is only two stops from Kyoto Station and is right across the road from Inari station. There is a 7/11 next to it. You walk up a wide pathway, then steps around the shrine temples then a rocky,uneven path to the shrine gates. There...More

My family and I visited the shrine without any intention of cloning to the top. The shrine was extremely crowded but it so happens that almost everyone turns back at the midpoint. We continued on and took some of our best photos near the top...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
