This shrine is beautiful but also tends to be a bit crowded. You can climb all the way to the top - about a 90 minute trip that is well worth it. There are also fewer people up further as well as some nice places...More

Wow this shrine is everything you thought it would be, there are a number of different pathways showing you different areas. It is very long to get right to the top and gets steep so I wouldn’t recommend climbing to high with small kids. You...More

Brought the family and were able to ascend Mt Inari without too much trouble. The maps along the way are definitely NOT to scale and can demoralize you by making you think that it will take forever to get to the top. Just keep going...More

Would definitely recommend doing the full walk to the top - as the higher you go, the less tourists there are. We were the only ones around and it was the most beautiful and peaceful walk.

Great hike, you have to do it. At the beginning of the path there are a lot of tourists and one hardly gets ahead. But those who fight their way up to the summit will be rewarded with a beautiful view. And up here it...More

Great shrine with unbelievably many "gates", to see more you have to walk uphill. Quite crowdy place at the bottom, then it gets better.

One of the most beautiful temple of Japan. Whoever visits Japan must have time to see. Location is very convenient, 2 stations away from Kyoto main train station. Very beautiful garden excellent temple, you need at least one hour to complete the visit.

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

The path wasn't very steep at all, so I think it could be fine as long as you take it slow and have breaks. I noticed that not many people went all the way, even a short walk through the gates shows off a nice atmosphere.
