Walk in Kyoto – Fushimi Inari Taisha Shrine

Fushimi Inari-taisha (伏見稲荷大社) is the head Shinto shrine of the kami Inari, located in Fushimi Ward, Kyoto, Kyoto Prefecture, Japan.

The shrine sits at the base of a mountain also named Inari which is 233 metres (764 ft) above sea level, and includes trails up the mountain to many smaller shrines which span 4 kilometres (2.5 mi) and take approximately 2 hours to walk up.

To the top of the mountain are tens of thousands of mounds (塚, tsuka) for private worship.

The highlight of the shrine is the rows of torii gates, known as Senbon Torii.
