|Komainu are the foxes (look like dogs) that are on either side of any Inari shrine entrance. There are thousands of Inari shrines in Japan|
There is a train leading to the top of the mountain. Along the trails were torii gates, orange and black, donated by businesses or individuals.
|This map doesn't show all the way up to the top of the mountain|
|Mom and Dad did fine with the hills and all of the walking. Kyoto involved a lot of walking around, lots of stairs and hills.|
|We went a little further up and then turned around|
|This photo is not ours, but comes from Japan Travel dot com, it shows the entrance of two rows of torii gates. Nice huh?|
I'd say that Fushimi Inari Taisha is a can't miss spot in Kyoto. It was beautiful, especially at the time of day (afternoon, close to evening) that we went. The shadows and lighting was very soft and perfect for taking pictures and just made the orange torii seem to glow.
