Thanks for stopping by, grab a drink and stay for a bit! 

Fushimi Inari Taisha.

Fushimi Inari Taisha.

Out of all the places to see in Kyoto, this was my number one spot I was dying to see. 

To me, this is visually insane. 

I also knew that there was a ton of history here. 

Like "Inari"- that is the god of rice.

If you plan on visiting here make sure you are wearing very comfortable shoes, this is the ultimate workout. I'm talking Stair master 30000000 

Depending on the pace that you move it could take 2 hours or all day, for me I didn't make it all the way up to the top because I was told there was no view just more gates. 

After you get to the little top part you're just about over the gates. Plus what goes up must come down, so that means the only way down is walking all the stairs again. 

SO like I said, all up to your pace. 

Each of the gates were apparently donated by business men, merchants and manufactures since Inari was seen as the patron of business. 

Basically, they wanted to have good fortune on their business. 

There is said to be about 32,000 Gates all together. 

The Tori Gates are a must see and free to see, make sure to add it to the list if going to Japan.
