Voyage around Fushimi Inari Shrine

Lovely trails with thousands of vermilion torii gates

Fushimi Inari Shrine is in the south of Kyoto and is famous for its thousands of vermilion tori gates. The trails through the gates and around the shrine lead you into the forest and up Mount Inari. Fushimi Inari is dedicated to the god of rice, Inari, and the fox statues found throughout the pathways are Inari’s messengers. The best way to explore the grounds is through Senbon Torii, which are two dense rows of tori gates leading up the mountainside. Along the trails are smaller shrines, restaurants, rest areas, and beautiful views like at Yotsutsuji intersection, which takes about 45 minutes to get up to from the Romon Gate.
