I knew it would be a tourist magnet but there is something about this place that just didn't do it for me. It was pouring down when we visited and still busy. If you go higher up the hillside the visitors disperse and you are...More

This was a beautiful hike. Our jet lag had us up early so we started about 7:30 am. There were very few people at that time. It was so peaceful and serene. The hike was a hike!! But we’ll worth it. We took our time...More

Almost certainly whenever you go it will be very busy. The walk to the top of the mountain is quite strenuous. The further up you go the less people, so you can take better photos. At the top you can get a good view of...More

We visited this temple in winter season. Seeing snows fall and a newly wedd-couple taking their afterwedding's photos feels very romantic.

The endless rows of the wooden Tori-is make it a very unique place of worship. The planning and the creation of the structure is reflective of the immense religious devotion.

Full of people and mosquito. Just next to JR station. Go all the way up can avoid the crowd. Still worth to go after all:)

We caught the train from Kyoto station with JR Pass. Easy and straight forward. Temple is before gates which was worth visiting. Gets crowded as you make your way through early stages of gates. Takes an hour to walk to top and an hour back,...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

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.
