Fushimi Inari Taisha is a rather unique shrine complex. Hundreds of red gates take you up a mountain, giving you a great view of Kyoto at the top.
Budget travel tips
- Make sure you walk up and explore the hundreds of red gates going up the mountain.
- Take the bus if you have a bus pass, it’s not too difficult to find from the bus stop.
How to get there
From Kyoto station, take the Nara line train to Inari station (140 yen, 5 mins).
From other areas, take the bus to the Inaritaisya-mae bus stop on the southbound No.5 bus. It’s a short, easy walk from here.
