The highlight of Fushimi Inari Shrine is the Senbon Torii, rows of bright-red shrine gates, which create a magical scene found nowhere else on earth. It is both a spot of sacred power …moreand a popular spot for taking photos. Visiting in the evening is especially recommended. Passing through the shrine gates, you might experience the strange feeling that you could end up coming out in a completely different dimension.
It takes about 30 minutes from the foothills to the summit, so if you are in good shape, you should definitely try hiking to the top.
