Photo Tour of Japan | Fushimi Inari Shrine

Apr 16 | Evan | No Comments |

Fushimi Inari Shrine is one of my favorite places in Kyoto.  It’s a little out of the way in Southeastern Kyoto, but certainly worth the extra effort to get there!  There are thousands of torii gates lined up next to each other of various sizes.  All of the gates have the names of individuals or companies that have made donations to have their gate placed there.  So one side is just red and the other side has characters on the torii gate.  While most places in Kyoto do not open early, Fushimi Inari never closes, so you can come visit as early as you want.  Like with the bamboo groves of Arashiyama, I recommend going as early as possible to avoid crowds, but really, it doesn’t get as crowded here as other popular tourist places in Kyoto like Kiyomizudera or Golden Pavilion.
