First time I have to walk at 1 km/h to go through the temple as it was probably the most overcrowded I have seen it. Nice an orderly, all tourists nearly followed the rules and all were able to appreciate the magnificence of the place....More

Strongly recommend a visit. So vast in size it's almost overwhelming, quite something to see. But the highlight were the deer. So beautiful and tame, but will nip you with their little teeth if you don't feed them quickly enough.

Visiting Tofuku-ji Temple is for its well known garden to see colorful maple and ginkgo trees in Autumn. It’s over crowded. As result, it’s not easy to enjoy and appreciate the scenery in a relaxing manner.

Southern Kyoto
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

There’s very few stairs. There’s a lot to see without going up the steps. To get inside one of the temples there are a few steps, however, I don’t think it should be much of an issue.

There are many flights of steps to get to the temple. Some of the pavement are laid with gravels. Suggest you carry your baby in a sling.
