Fushimi Inari Shrine – Kyoto

We catch the train to head to this famous site. Easy walk through the village to locate Mount Inari where the shrine sits at its base. Donated by merchants, this was built in honor of the Shinto, god of rice. Trails up the mountain lead over 5000 vibrant orange torii gates that wind through the hills. One of the most popular shrines in Japan.

 Not sure why they are staring me. Ha!!

Foxes are thought to be Inari’s messengers

So impressed with this site. The narrow roadway, back to the Train Station takes us past many kiosks selling wonderful grilled food. Some look really gourmet and others…selling Bavarian sausage. We regret not stopping and eating here…too early for dinner.
