Fushimi Inari is a beautiful temple. It has long stairs with unique red taisha. You will get a good picture here =)

Prepare to climb some stairs but the view at the top answer surrounding grounds are stunning. Hard to believe it was built way back when. Be prepared for crowds and don't miss the meandering downhill walk through the old sidesteps full of shops and eateries.

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
