We spent an entire morning at this place! It was our second day in Kyoto and we took a JR line that stopped in front of the entrance of the shrine. There were already loads of tourists and snack shops lined the street all the...More

We did not visit this site during our last visit. Not sure why. But this time with the children we made it and it is truly nice and magnificent. A fantastic place for photos and we took plenty. Yes it was cold being winter but...More
This place is amazing. Lots and lots of red toriis all over the place, and a beautiful view of the city from up there. But be prepared to spend a couple of hours or more there: it is a HUGE area, and you will have...More
There is no shortage of shrines to visit around Kyoto, but this one was definitely our favourite. Many great photo opportunities and various routes that can be taken depending on your schedule and desire to go for a bit of a hike.
We love the beautiful structures that span throughout the whole mountaintop. Visitors are to take note that certain ceremonies conducted by the temple and statues are restricted from photograpy. We had to go quite early in the morning to avoid the crowds and for better...More
Definitely worth the visit! This stop is iconic-make sure to take the classic photo of you with rows of orange gateways! If you get to the half way point there is a beautiful view of the city and along the way you can enjoy orange...More
Southern Kyoto has a reserved air. Though the Fushimi Inari Shrine is one of Kyoto's major tourist attractions, the surrounding nature, parks, gardens, temples, and shrines provide less-visited spaces for strolling and reflection. The Fushimi Inari Shrine itself is made up of 32,000 sub-shrines, and the mountain they are dotted across beckons hikers, picnickers, and lovers of the outdoors. Many of the
mountain's off-set paths aren't frequented by tourists, and the mountain's serenity can be enjoyed at a leisurely pace. Southern Kyoto is the place to enjoy being outside, and to pay your respects to the ancient architecture and gods of the land that are celebrated here.

I did a one day tour with Taka san but spent several days in Kyoto, I'm not 100% sure if they would pick up from Osaka but if not they would certainly pick you up from any Kyoto train station. My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed it and 100% felt it was worth teh money, especially if you're interested in the cultural side of Japan. We only wished we'd done it earlier in our itinerary (we spent a month in Japan and Kyoto was the last place we visited). We learnt alot about the culture and the temples we visited that you couldn't google and would otherwise entirely miss out on. In a 4 hour private car tour we went to 3 temples and saw some of the country/local cuisine and Taka dropped us off at the Fushimi Inari Shrine which we were glad we ended on since it's enormous- too big to do it all in a private tour.
We went through this company
privatetour-kyoto and again our guide was Taka although I think all the guides there are pretty good.
