Neighbourhood: 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.

Wonderful small Zen Buddhist temple
Nov 2016 • Solo
This small temple was popular with the locals; there were small tour groups both times I was there. I tried coming late in the afternoon when the tour groups had left, and had the chance to enjoy the serenity and beautiful of the rocks garden with autumn foliage in the background. Wonderful!

A very beautiful experience. Calm and peaceful and quiet if you go early morning. Well worth a visit.

Rocks garden
Feb 2016 • Couples
You can walk here from Kinkakujin, just 20 minutes. The most interesting thing is the rocks garden. Nice place. But if you are not after religious buildings, you don't have to come to Kyoto for this.
