    Itinerary
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, 68 Fukakusa Yabunouchicho, Fushimi, Kyoto 612-0882 Kyoto Prefecture

    Visit a tree god and get your divination lot interpreted for you. Drink healing water from a hidden waterfall. Hike down a path that pilgrims still use. You will learn how politics changes the way people worship, how people struggle to strike a balance between ritual and spontaneity, and how Hinduism, Korean animism, and even the US military have shaped the Inari faith.

    Duration: 3 hours

    Pass By: Tofuku-ji Temple, 15-778 Hommachi, Higashiyama, Kyoto 605-0981 Kyoto Prefecture

    We will pass by Tofukuji Temple, Kyoto's oldest zen temple, on the way to the station.

    This tour was an incredible way to see more behind the scenes at Fushimi Inari. We learned about what so many of the shrines mean and were able to get off the more traveled paths of the area. The Fushimi complex is huge! I can't...More
