伏見稲荷大社、KyotoFushimi Inari Taisha is an important Shinto shrine in southern Kyoto. It is famous for its thousands of vermilion torii gates, which straddle a network of trails behind its main buildings. The trails lead into the wooded forest of the sacred Mount Inari, which stands at 233 meters and belongs to the shrine grounds.Fushimi Inari is the most important of several thousands of shrines dedicated to Inari, the Shinto god of rice. Foxes are thought to be Inari's messengers, resulting in many fox statues across the shrine grounds. Fushimi Inari Shrine has ancient origins, predating the capital's move to Kyoto in 794.
I love this place, i recommend to go early in the morning aroun 7:30 to avoid the crowd and take beautiful pictures.
Traditional cultural heritage was so impressive. Just Amazing.
You will probably need 2 hours and lots of strength to climb and conquer Mountain Inari, which is the Ultimate.
I visited there for the symbolic features and they never disappointed me. just a bit crowded during red leaves season. Worth going at all times.
