So worth getting the train there early, between 7-8am so you can beat the crowds. We loved the place. Wear good shoes and when you get up the main viewing point before the top loop, turn left as this is the less steep option of...More

The place is beautiful but the amount of tourists...I really wanted to get out of there as soon as I arrived. Only for the people that don’t mind the crowds.

It is a beautiful place. Fortunately for me, it was drizzling slightly with thunderstorms expected so the crowd was much less than usual. Otherwise, come early to beat the crowds.

I went here in November 2018 and walked all the way to the top on a Sunday morning. It was quite busy but got quieter as you made your way to the top. Amazing view and good exercise !

A beautiful and serene place. Very spiritual and sublime yet chaotic because of all the tourists. Passing thru those orange gates is the highlight

It's a really good place and must see experience, if you are in kyoto should go there. But after a while it can get a little repetitive and you basically just climbing stairs

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

It is free. You can do an extra section and I think this requires a ticket but we didn’t do this. It’s a short train trip out of Kyoto
