Lots of english displays, so you don't really need a tour to get something out of it. Really loved the sake testing and was made up with the free sake bottle!

The process was interesting until they kept repeating it. The museum was very boring. The only highlight was the free sake bottle given.

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,

300 Japanese yen (about US$3). All visitors (except the person under the age of 20) can get a small bottle of Sake as a souvenir. This is also included in the entrance.
