Hiking around the entire mountain of Fushimi Inari Taisha
Once awarded as the most popular shrine destination in Japan by TripAdvisor, Fushimi Inari Taisha is indeed an extraordinarily famous Shinto shrine. The tour covers its entire mountain, so it’s like going hiking or mountain climbing.
With a history of more than 1300 years, Fushimi Inari is the leading Shinto shrine to represent about 30,000 shrines belonging to the same sect across Japan. Now it is so famous that countless numbers of inbound tourists keep visiting. However, the true object for worship there is the entire mountain which is lined with about 10,000 vermilion colored gates. This tour follows the trail over the entire mountain by which you can deeply understand the significance of Japanese Shintoism and its influence on people in Japan.
