There are many shrines in Japan, but this is arguably one of the most iconic ones, meaning that there are a lot of tourists visiting this place every day. It will be hard to shoot the ideal picture with so many people around and it...More

The shrine is impressive and very special, but the crowdedness in the place diminishes the pleasure. Like all temples in Japan, you should come here very early in the morning or at sunset

The place is beautiful but the amount of tourists...I really wanted to get out of there as soon as I arrived. Only for the people that don’t mind the crowds.

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

It is a one hour hop on the train to Kyoto from Osaka, but you should plan on at least 2-3 days - there is so much to see that is so wonderful.

It is free. You can do an extra section and I think this requires a ticket but we didn’t do this. It’s a short train trip out of Kyoto
