When we first visited Fushimi Inari in 2012, I knew that it would always be on my must visit places to return to whenever I was visiting Kyoto.
It is my favourite of the many temples and shrines in Kyoto.
We went in the early morning when there were not too many people around. It was a quiet and peaceful two hour walk along the whole trail with lovely views of Kyoto from the top. Walking up Mount Inari through the thousands of bright orange Torii gates felt magical and because it was still early we spent most of the time wondering alone through the quiet woods. Just like two years ago.
Another photo of the Torii gates forming the path. I don’t get bored of looking at them. I took many, many photos there. Some are almost exactly the same as ones I took two years ago. I couldn’t stop myself.
