Fushimi Momoyama Castle is closed to public, and the visitors can only take a look from outside. Although the building itself is not the original, it recalls the glory of the past time. The mausoleum of the emperor Kanmu is nearby. You can visit it...More

My father found this castle in his guidebook, which was apparently published just months after the park was closed in 2003. His book showed photos of a bustling, vibrant park, but when we got there, it was mostly empty. There was a Japanese family there...More

This is a magnificent castle and park. It's worth going to take some lovely pictures even though you can't go inside. Also you can see Emperor Meiji's tomb and the Nogi Shrine in the same park. You should definitely enter the park from the Momoyama...More

The castle is big and beautiful. This one's one the normal white ones most castle are. However, the castle keep is closed to visitors and only the grounds are open (free) Not many visitors. It's an uphill walk from the Momoyama train station

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,
