A lot of tourist. You can't take pictures of the Torii. It's so overwhelming. The only good thing is the entrance is free.

We did enjoy learning the history on this shrine. In Japan there are many shrines to see, so one can be selective on which ones to visit. Can be very busy with tourist - so allow time to visit.

The peaceful environment found in Japan generally and at this site specifically is wonderful. A people at peace with themselves and not trying to invade your private thoughts and studying their culture.

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
