Fushimi Inari-Taisha

The Fushimi Inari-Taisha is one of the most visited Shintō shrines in Kyōto, Japan. The locals get here yearly at the day of the horse – since 708 the Hatsu-uma-matsuri festival is held at that day here.

Most impressive are of course the endless torii gates that line up on the grounds of the shrine. They form a path up the hill and were donated by families and companies. You can follow the path through the torii up the hill to a shrine and on the other side of the hill back down again. A fantastic setting!
