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
The bright vermilion gates wither spiritual beauty made me put this Shrine on our itinerary. We had initially planned to visit this place in the morning of our second day in Kyoto. However, we decided to do it in the afternoon of our first day....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
I admire the persistence and dedication of the entire nation to preserve its own culture, Japanese also embraces their culture and make sure the world knows about it. This beautiful structure shows how hard they work to maintain the city's charm. Every shrine built is...More
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.

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 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.

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.
