Although it was very crowded, this site is one of the must sees in Kyoto. Just be weary of the crowds and hordes of people whom will stop at random points for a photo.

A beautiful shrine with a lot of steps to climb. A very serene place. This place is very popular with tourists. This is just at a walking distance from the station. You will also find a lot of hand rickshaw pullers willing to take you...More

This Shrine is so unique with thousands of Vibrant Orange Torii Gates dating back to 711 AD, it was very crowded so be prepared for lots of people, plenty of souvenir shops & food carts that sell really nice finger food, really worth a visit.

Too many people very difficult to get a nice photo spot. Like the bright orange colour and the steps leading to the hill above tho we didnt go all the way up.

This shrine is very unique and different then other shrines in Japan. Thousabds of Tori that have been donated to the shrine. It has to be seen to be believed.

The shrine is located at the foot of Mt Inari and the beginning of what is known as 1000 Tori gates. The gates go to the top of Mt Inari and are numerous to say the least. This trek to the top and back will...More

Inari Shrine is one of Kyoto's major tourist

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,

Lots of steps but otherwise not hard. If it's not too crowded you can take your time. Also there are a few turn outs if you don't want to do the whole thing.
