Photo of the Week: Fushimi Inari Shrine, Kyoto

This page may contain affiliate links. Please read our disclosure for more info.

The Fushimi-Inari shrine was our favourite of the many stunning temples and shrines in Kyoto. A tunnel of thousands of bright orange torii gates snake through the forest up into the mountains. The black lettering is the names of individuals and companies who have donated them. Early in the morning it was a peaceful and magical place.

  4. The Gates go all the way over the other side of the hill, and this was one of the shrines featured in the movie “Memoirs of a Geisha,” though I forget the exact scene. I got very very lost in that forest of gates back in 2006! Glad you like it, too!

  5. So beautiful. I was just writing on another blogger’s blog yesterday about the color red in Japan. I was in Kyoto but did not make it to this temple. Next time 🙂
