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.
It is an important Shinto shrine in Kyoto, located just outside JR Inari Station, the second station from Kyoto Station along the JR Nara Line. This place was amazing with great history and great views.
It's hard to find a quiet space in Kyoto. This is what a temple should feel like..... serene and peaceful. It's hard to believe 300 monks live here, there was no sign of them. We came here as part of a walking tour otherwise I'm not sure that we would have come across it. The Zen garden by a famous...
Toji is a great example of pagoda. it is right in the middle of kyoto and not a far walk from kyoto station. it is easily seen from many places in kyoto. most especial is the Toji market,
on the grounds the 21st of each month.
Albeit is was very early in the Sakura season, I gather that it was extremely quiet during our current visit. There were very few other people there.
The temple is a reasonable walk from the metro, and all uphill. It isn't hard to find. There are entrance fees for the three different sections. There is a garden, main temple, and...
I went to Jonangu shrine early March during the weekdays. Just a couple of tourist and group of local aunties around which is great for me taking my sweet time enjoying the beauty of the garden.
There are 5 garden. I spent the most time at spring mountain area where there are about 150 weeping plums and camellias.The view was...
Totally unassuming from outside, I was drawn in by my magical intuitions. And for the second time, they hit the hammer dead right on the tip of the nail.
Amazing coffee, super delicious snacks and the best ever service! Together with Monz Cafe in Fukagawa in Tokyo, the best coffee shops in all of Japan!!
Obviously the place is popular as we had to queue. However its worth - excellent meals plus competitive prices. Its a good idea to go there when you visit the inure shrine - you will need some strength if you want to go on the top of the mountain.
If you pass this place in the station several times and there's always a long queue, it's got to be worth trying. Staff going '19 to the dozen' as my grandmother would say, producing steamed pork buns and gyoza by the thousands, shows this small food place is doing great business. We just had to stop and join the queue....
Went to the Gekkeikan sake Musuem for a day trip and needed to find a place for lunch.
We found this place and the yakitori is excellent. I also had a delicious oyaka don!
Great place for a quick lunch!
I really looked forward to the breakfast at this hotels due to great reviews from previous guests and it did not disappoint. It seems that it was well curated and it's a disappointment that lunch or dinner is not available. Having said that there is really not much to be desired from staying at this hotel - transport wise it's...

When one books a hotel, the question of how best to maximise the hotel comes into mind. Here are my 2 useful tips to share with fellow travellers: (a) Use the hotel public bath facilities. It is an opportunity to experience how public bath is being done in Japan with this activity being done in the confines of a hotel....
Location of the hotel is good. Very close to kyoto station just walk around 2-3 minutes. Very close to convenien store and resturant. Room is comfortable and cozy. All staff are nice. I'll stay here next time in kyoto absolutely. Recommend!
