Fushimi Inari TaishaKyoto
We arrived there about 730am and we were the first few visitors. At the entrance of Fushimi Inari Taisha, you will be welcomed by two guardian foxes. They are believed to be the guardian of this mountain as back in the days foxes always came out of the mountain to hunt for food. Walking through a thousand of orange gates surrounded by forest, and birds chirping around.. the tranquility when walking in a shrine like this was amazing. If you're up for it, you can hike all the way up to the summit. We hiked for 30 minutes and decided to descend because we were too hungry.
- Come early and you will not regret it! We always got asked 'why wake up so early just to take photos? Isnt travel supposed to be relaxing?'. For that our replies will always be - the experiences are always much ( a lot ) better as you can experience the authenticity of the place instead of a tourist attraction.
