Of all of the many shrines we visited during our recent trip to Japan, this was the most unique. It is a long way up to the top, but so much to see along the way, it is worth it, if you are able to...More

Amazing experience. Make sure you wear comfortable walking shoes so you trek to the top of the mountain. Good views as you walk up. Less crowds the higher you go. Will take 2-3 hours.

We were there on Sunday and it was very crowded. We walked about a third of the way up the mountain which was good exercise. On the way we passed the large shrine and various smaller ones. On the way back down, there are hundreds...More

Really beautiful and must visit place in Kyoto. Many steps leading up to the top, we stopped midway where there was a nice view of Kyoto city. Will recommend going early if you want nice photos and less crowd. The streets around the entrance sells...More

Kyoto is lovely enough. And you'll only have some many things to do you'll probably hike this. If you like activity you might as well just go to the top because you don't have anything better to do, but expect to find half weathered torii...More

Well worth the trip, even though it was quite a damp day when we visited. Despite the weather, it was busy but the crowds thinned considerably the higher we went.

Fushimi Inari was absolutely my favourite place I visited in Japan. It was raining when we visited but that didn't detract from the powerful atmosphere. As you walk up the sacred mountain through the vermillion gates flanked by shrines guarded by thousands of stone foxes,...More

Another IG worthy location but it was way too crowded. I felt like going to Geylang Bazaar during the fasting month (for those who have not visited Singapore yet, you should drop by during the Muslim fasting month, then you'll know what I mean). But...More

I think that no matter what time of day you go here, it will be crowded, but don't let that stop you as this place is even better than all the pictures. Climb up as far as you can and stop along the way to...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

We went on the 4th January it was extremely busy due to the New Year holiday. Every where was busy in both Kyoto and Tokyo but we got used to the crowds and expected queues.

Best way is through JR Inari, Kyoto. Trip will take about 1 1/2h from Osaka. Best time is as early as possible as it gets busy later on the day
