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
The orange torii gates of Fushimi Inari-Taisha Shrine, are one of the most iconic images that come to mind when I think of Japan. So making the trek to the top look out was on the top of my to do list.

My sister wanted to visit the shrine, so we did. We have to change from a JR line to a metro line, but it wasn't too difficult to get there (google helps a lot). Beautiful place, but remember to wear good sports/climbing shoes, it gets...More
This review mirrors the reviews already posted. We went quite late and the more we walked up the mountain the thin we the crowds became. There are sunset viewing spots part way up which we great and not too busy. The walk back down was...More
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 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.
