Japan Photo Guide Fushimi Inari 001

Anyone that has talked to me about visiting Japan before knows that Kyoto is my favorite city to travel to in Japan.  I usually follow that up with saying, Kyoto is perhaps my favorite city to visit not only in Japan but in the world.  I’m sure there are some great cities out there for me to visit and photograph, I love Kyoto for it’s incredible mix of traditional and modern Japan.  Of course like when visiting other parts of Japan, Kyoto is very safe, clean with good options for public transportation.  One of my favorite places to visit and photograph is Fushimi Inari Shrine.  Japan Photo Guide Fushimi Inari 002 Japan Photo Guide Fushimi Inari 004

Besides the thousands of torii gates and beautiful grounds, Fushimi Inari Shrine is one of the few spectacular places in Kyoto that is open 24 hours, making it great place to visit for golden hour in the morning.  Not to mention, anything later int he day will be so packed with tourists that it makes taking photos quite difficult.
