Fushimi Inari Taisha, an icon of Kyoto, is affectionately known as the temple with a thousand torii gates. As you venture up, you will be greeted with gates painted in orange. I came during the early evening and headed for the summit. The lack of crowds made it very peaceful, yet their very absence seem creepy, like a ghost town. For those brave enough to reach the top, a magnificent view of Kyoto’s city lights awaits.
