Fushimi Inari Taisha

A big highlight of our time in Kyoto was going to Fushimi Inari Taisha, the head shrine for over 40,000 Inari shrines in Japan.  After spending so much time walking in flat cities, it was a good change to walk all the way around to the top of the hill!  The lower precinct has such densely packed torii gates, it’s like entering a different world.  We walked all the way to the summit of the hill, past graveyards, fox statues, and about 5,000 torii.
