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

Like all guidebooks, Fushimi Inari taisha is a must! It’s emblematic of japan. But it is crowded with tourists. We went around 11am which is one of the worst times to go but it really gets less crowded as you go up. You can get...More

Even with the heat wave Kyoto is facing, this place gets tons of visitors. Given it doesn't close, we went really early (7:30am) and it was well worth it. While there were others at the shrine and the first part of the gates, there were...More

We went there at 6pm just close to the sunset time, the view of Kyoto is amazing and the santuary is just awesome with thousands of toriis all around.

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.
