Well worth a visit, even if you don't want to walk the whole thing. Shinto temples at the bottom, with various things going on. The first section with the gates is crowded, but once you get past the one way section, numbers drop significantly. It...More

Visiting Kyoto for the first time, we wanted to go and see this, especially the iconic walkway that is featured in movies, magazines, etc. One does not have to stay long. Anything from 30 - 45 min will be good.

This place is an absolute must. There is plenty of walking therefore you will need to wear comfortable shoes. Definitely bring camera for perfect photo opportunity. There are stalls selling snacks and souvenirs along the way.

You can't go to Kyoto without visiting this place. You'll enjoy the temples and you'll feel the peace of the place as you go higher in the hill and as you see less people.

This historical site is portal back in time. You cannot visit Kyoto without visiting this site. Wear comfortable walking and hiking shoes because there are hundreds and thousands of steps to scale.

Must see! I recommend that you visit this place with a guide who explain everything in detail so you will appreciate in total the meaning and spirituality of the Japanese Sintoism.

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 best way to get to the shrine is by a private taxi ride with MK Taxis straight opposite Kyoto station. It is more expensive than the public system but well worth it, especially if you are travelling with your parents. I... More

No. It is free. It's a public park / shrine. The only fee is if you decide to do a wish or prayer.
