This is a beautiful and must go place in Kyoto. I really enjoyed this place because it feels like you are in a peaceful place. Away from the busy and crowded place. It is a big area with lots of walk. It was fun though,...More
This is another must go site for tourists. Be mesmerised by the numerous gates lining up the pathway to the top of the mountain. Stop by for some shrines along the way.
Would recommend coming at night for a different vibe to the place. Viewing...More
It’s quite a walk to the top and alot of steps (62 flights according to my watch). It was fascinating to find out how the Shinto and Buddhism work together thanks to a guide we met. There is not really a view at the top...More
This is again a big tourist attraction in Kyoto. so either be there really early or late afternoon to beat the crowds. We arrived at about 3pm and it was still a little crowded.
The torri gates start more or less straight after the main...More
Stunning. First time we went during the day, allowing for more hiking up through the torii. Second time was on New Year's Eve so there was a great set-up of food vendors on the approach to the temple. Not sure which was my favorite visit.
A very impressive shrine but please be prepared to walk/hike. The 1000s of gates set this shrine apart from the rest in Japan and is a very popular tourist destination. Great photos and a beautiful walk up and down a small mountain. Very pleasant experience...More
This is a must when visiting Kyoto. From Kyoto station a 15 mins subway and your transported into a peaceful area. Avoid the crowds in the afternoon! Great place to pick up souvenirs. Was lucky to pick up a Japanese sukajan jacket for 66,800 yen....More
Easy access from station. crossing of the trains route to head to the temple is fun. Plenty of foodstalls to taste the variety of street food. Beef yakitori is a must try! This place is simply amazing....the quietness after touristy first portion of inari
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
mountain's off-set paths aren't frequented by tourists, and the mountain's serenity can be enjoyed at a leisurely pace. Southern Kyoto is the place to enjoy being outside, and to pay your respects to the ancient architecture and gods of the land that are celebrated here.

I did a one day tour with Taka san but spent several days in Kyoto, I'm not 100% sure if they would pick up from Osaka but if not they would certainly pick you up from any Kyoto train station. My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed it and 100% felt it was worth teh money, especially if you're interested in the cultural side of Japan. We only wished we'd done it earlier in our itinerary (we spent a month in Japan and Kyoto was the last place we visited). We learnt alot about the culture and the temples we visited that you couldn't google and would otherwise entirely miss out on. In a 4 hour private car tour we went to 3 temples and saw some of the country/local cuisine and Taka dropped us off at the Fushimi Inari Shrine which we were glad we ended on since it's enormous- too big to do it all in a private tour.
We went through this company
privatetour-kyoto and again our guide was Taka although I think all the guides there are pretty good.
