The thousand toriis of Fushimi Inari Taisha

Today we go for a night photo-walk to Fushimi Inari-taisha, the head shrine of the kami Inari, located just a train stop away from the bustling city of Kyoto.

The first time I visited Fushimi Inari-taisha was way back in January of 2016 Since then I have been to the heritage site a couple of times but I never came around to writing about it Fushimi Inari-taisha (伏見稲荷大社) is the head shrine of the Kami Inari, located in Fushimi-ku area of Kyoto The shrine sits at the base of a hill, also named Inari, which is roundabout 230 meters in height Most of the prominent structures are located right at the base However, for the adventurous types there are numerous trails that lead right up to the summit of the Inari mountain, where you can find some very old and interesting shrines
