Location is conveniently located outside a train station. Place can be very crowded as it is a famous attraction.

Just beware of the hordes of visitors, not surprisingly...and don’t go if it’s raining unless you have no other available time.

It was around a 2.5 hour round trip, going at a leisurely pace, and taking lots of photos of the smaller shrines on the mountain. It's amazing how quickly the crowd thins out as you start to climb the mountain. A very rewarding experience!

In two weeks in Japan visiting dozens of temples and shrines, this was my favorite. Really amazing! Save some hours to explore it properly.

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
