An advice: go there by night, you can then take very beautiful photos (should then have a nice camera that can manage low illumination!!), and also very romantic.

Starting with the most famous of Kyoto, the Fushimi Inari-taisha and its then thousands Torris, kind of huge wood gates painted in orange and black, devoted to wealth. No surprise that the main temple was invaded by hordes of Chinese groups and their selfie sticks,...More

Very crowded intially at the first 100 or so Tori gates as everyone is trying to take pictures which is silly because all you see are floating heads. Walk along the foot path along beside the gates to lose the crowds. It will eventually die...More

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

Best way is through JR Inari, Kyoto. Trip will take about 1 1/2h from Osaka. Best time is as early as possible as it gets busy later on the day

More than enough, if you go in the morning & hike till the summit. Since you are going with an elderly lady you may want to take it slow but half a day is still more than enough.

I would recommend against it if you have children. We have two seven year old kids and it was not fun for them. Not because of the hiking (my kids love hiking and outdoors), it’s because there are so many people and it’s... More
