We didn't arrive early so we dealt with the crowds. We arrived around 1030 am. The gates are pretty awesome and they make for great pictures. If you're bringing a baby I recommend using your baby carrier for this one. A stroller would be possible, but you'll be lifting it for a large portion. Initially there are lots of people... More

Gorgeous and breathtaking. It gets incredibly crowded but do the hike to the top of Mt. Inari and the crowds will thin out significantly. It's quite the workout so wear comfy clothes, shoes and bring plenty of water and some snacks.

While i would have preferred to visit the famed vermillion torii gates during day time, night fell too early that day. It was every bit as mysterious and grand. It made my trip to Kyoto all the more worth while. Will visit again for sure!

By the time I visited Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine I was suffering from temple/shrine fatique! However the torii gate covered hiking trail was different other I would not have remembered this shrine. As usual the trail was packed full of people so I was very pleased to have taken one photo with just a hint of a person in it!

Main shrine at bottom is neat, it's a good hike to the top. About halfway you can stop and get refreshments at a main shop but there also little places on the way...nothing really outstanding though. The hike to the top is not too difficult but it's not easy either. Several great observatory spots overlooking the city. It is super... More

Go an early morning or deviate from the main track. There are in fact places within the sight where you can find peace and tranquility but you need to step off from the crowd.

A great place and I highly recommend visiting but get there early in the morning if you can because it's very popular! We spent a long time waiting to take a photograph without people in it. There's a food market nearby and we had some great grilled mochi there!

A little overcrowded to start with, but the Shrine itself is actually an amazing experience. I recommend completing the hike - there are some great photo opportunities and views along the way (Tori's extend all the way throughout the hike), and it's much less crowded. It will be really tiring so make sure you're hydrated. When I reached the top... More

Nice but it was way too crowded. A good hike for the whole family. The fall foliage were really pretty. There were some stops along the way. At the bottom of the shrine there is a food street where you can get some munch!

Amazing place but unfortunately it was absolutely overcrowded (Saturday morning) which made the visit there just annoying. Try to avoid visiting it on weekends because it was almost impossible to stand because of the moving human wave.

Staying in Southern Kyoto

Neighbourhood Profile
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 mountain's off-set paths aren't frequented by tourists, and the mountain's serenity can be enjoyed at a leisurely pace. Southern Kyoto is the place to enjoy being outside, and to pay your respects to the ancient architecture and gods of the land that are celebrated here.
