"Fushimi Inari Shrine" Fushimi Inari Shrine Tip by UKDaisy

Fushimi Inari Shrine, Kyoto: 30 reviews and 84 photos


One of my favourite and most unique places in Japan.
Can you imagine a "tunnel" created by lining up one torii gate after another? Well, this is where you can see it for yourself! All brightly coloured orange, and with different "tunnels" to choose to enter, it's like going through a maze. This was featured in the movie "Memoirs of a geisha".
This is one of the most unique experiences in Japan. You have to walk through/under gate after gate (each one between a few inches to metres apart... the bigger they are the further apart) from the bottom of a hill to the top.

Directions: Located at a short walk from Inari Station, which is only 5 minutes away by train on the JR Nara line from Kyoto train station. Train ride costs Yen140 (in Nov 2005)
