A truly amazing experience - no cost to enter and open 24 hours a day. The Tori Gates are fabulous, as are the surrounds. Highly recommended!

Fushimi-Inari is an interesting area with the spectacular orange gates all the way to the top of mount Inari. Take your time and even if you don't make it to the top it is worth the heavy walking.

It's on most people's 'bucket list' when in Kyoto. Absolutely worthwhile visit but many seem to spend all there time taking selfies and viewing through there cameras Wasted experience?

Incredible and unusual walking thru shrine tunnels effectively. Busy so go early. School trips frequent the temples & shrines so be prepared to participate in their days project also!

Visited this morning arriving at 6.30am. Was very quiet at this time and everyone was respectful of each other’s space. Finished the walk at 8.30am and the place was very busy. Well worth the visit early in the morning

One of my favorite places ever. Extremely unique, colorful, peaceful. My suggestion to arrive early since there are crowds of tourist and that can be a challenge. The path is for an entire mountaon, but there are ways out in case you cannot keep the...More

If you go up the right side, then up the mountain, you go through a bamboo forest. It takes you around the back, which gets very steep, but is less used and more quiet.

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,

It is a small station. You'd rather keep your luggage in Kyoto Station. Alternatively, I saw that there is a store about 100 meters away from the station that keeps luggage until 5pm.

You don't need a guide for Fushimi Inari Taisha. It's the shrines and the mountain plus enough selfie crowds at the start . If you wish to have a more indepth historical overview, that's on Fushimi's official English... More
