The thousands of gates of the Fushimi Inari are nestled on a mountain’s side in Kyoto. By design, the gates are hidden from view until the explorer is upon them. This is quite a feat seeing as they are large, bright and orange. They are pure magic to walk through and continue up the mountain for 4 kilometers. Also, the street food vendors selling takoyaki, sushi and ice cream with awesome sauce at the bottom of the mountain make the trip all the more worth it. Go. Now.
Lovely photos! I cannot begin to tell you how much I loved Fushimi Inari! It was the best place in Japan for me! http://backpackerlee.wordpress.com/2014/04/22/fushimi-inari-the-keys-to-the-mountain/
