This shrine is something that you must experience for your self. The thousands of gates are amazing to see, you won't believe it until you see it.

We can see why this shrine is very popular. However due to the popularity, the tourist volume can be very heavy at times. Otherwise it was a pleasant place to visit.

Visited this amazing place in December 2016. We had a private tour guide who was very knowledgeable and was able to tell us all we needed to know about it.

It's beatiful temple. You can rent a kimono, feels like local people. In winter time, make sure come early otherwise at 4.30pm already getting dark.

The first time I watched memoir of geisha I determined to go to this place. I went here on winter when most of days covered in rain. The place is beautiful and more importantly, free! Don't forget to bring umbrella and put your coats on especially on winter rainy days. You don't wanna catch cold.

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.
