This place is loaded with tourists and you need to act quick if you want to take any pictures. I brought along a selfie stick with Bluetooth remote and it work wonderfully. The place is full of steps so I suggest not to bring stroller...More

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

We enjoyed our trip to the Fushimi Shrine. Try to go early in the morning and not on the weekends to avoid the crowds.

It might be the mainstream destination, but it was all worth it. You may find the less traveled route and found hidden view with breath taking experience.

This Shrine is so easy to access by the train. Station right in front. Wonderful to experience the Tori gates. A shoppers delight an abundance of souvenir stores to snap up a bargain.

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

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.
