This was my second visit to the shrine and it was every bit as beautiful as I remembered it from 2000 when I was here the first time. There is something magical about walking and climbing underneath all the red tori gates. Reaching the top...More

Definitely a must-visit. Great place to take lots of photos and also to train your thigh muscles if you wish to hike up to the top. It took us 30 minutes to get to the halfway point.

This is a really nice place to spend and hour or two. The famous “1000 gates” attract a lot of tourists, so it’s very busy, and being in the forest does not provide much respite from the heat.

If you like Japanese shrines, if you like foxes, then you definitely have to visit this place! In the beginning of the movie "Memoir Of A Geisha", a little running into a long path of Toriis, that's the Senbon Torii in this shrine. These Torii...More

The many orange gates are a great photo opportunity but unless you get there early you will be constantly waiting for people to move for that perfect shot. Easy to get to from the Nara line out of Kyoto station, get off at Inari and...More

This place was packed late in the day but worth taking the walk to see the hundreds of red torii gates. Rumor has it there are over 5000 of them if you follow the walk up the hill.

The thousand-inari display is massive and impressive. The inari are arranged cleverly such that the words on the pillars can only be viewed from one side but not the other. Climb as many steps as your feet can carry you. Get to the top and...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

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.

Lots of steps but otherwise not hard. If it's not too crowded you can take your time. Also there are a few turn outs if you don't want to do the whole thing.
