Duration:4 hours (9:00-13:00)

Price: 6,500yen

Fushimi-Shrine is Trip Adviser NO1 popular destination in Japan in these years, because of its magnificent Thousands of Red Shrine Gates. it’s very photogenic.

In this Tour, After the Thousands Red Gate, I’m taking you by hidden back  scenic route along bamboo & cedar forestto to the summit of Mt Inari.
Usually, near the big main gate and the way to the view point are full with plenty of people ( actually more than half visitors return at the view point), but on the back route, probably you will meet a few people, feeling like private forest. On the way down, you can enjoy tea break with tasty boiled egg in the mountain hat.

Mt Inari itself is holly mountain, consist of 3 peaks and many shrines. On the way you will also see plenty of holly mounds dedicated by individual follower. You can feel cultural and sacred aspect of Fushimi.

From the top, walk down through uncountable red gates with less people to the panorama Kyoto View point, then go back to the main gate. I’ll also show you special photo spots on the way.

The path is well organized.
1h30m to the top ( last 20min is climb up), 1h down.
Time differ by walking speed, but if you can walk everybody can join.

After Hiking, walk in exciting Fushimi town with many food stands, then enjoy chewing Japanese noodle Soba or Udon with tea in historic and nice restaurant.
