Stick to the right of you want to avoid the steepest climb. Then go down the other side, shorted but steeper option. Half way up has great views of the city (if you only make it this far don't be disalpointed). Shady but not a...More
We were so looking forward to this shrine based on all the photos we have seen but we ended up there on a very hot/humid/rainy days with thousands of other people. I wish I would have planned to get there very early to beat the...More
We tried to get here early- but only made it just before 9 on a Sunday and already 33 degrees! It wasn't as crowded as I expected. This hike is definitely not for the faint hearted but if you take your time it is doable....More
Nice shrine. Lots of steps so be prepared. We walked for more than one hour.
In July it is very hot. It is good that the shrine is surrounded by trees to give some shade. But the humidity and temperatures are high so prepare to...More
I took maybe a hundred photos and endless videos but nothing will do this place justice unless you actually go there yourself. I've watched a bunch of Youtube videos and browsed through hundreds of photos but this place is really stunning in person. Not only...More
We arrived in an early afternoon, to our surprise, there were not so many people there, like other reviewers mentioned. We did hike all the way up, saw the beautiful view of the city, enjoyed the nature, and then walked all the way down. A...More

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.
Come when spring the weather everything just nice. To walk around there, taking a pictures and enjoy the surround you it takes less than 2 hours.
Around that temple, also lots of food stall for fill your tummy.
