A British Girl in…Kyoto! Part 3 (Fushimi Inari Torii & Some Last Pictures of Kyoto)

It was with a slightly sore head that I made my way out of Kyoto to Fushimi Inari in the South of the City the next morning. A Shinto Shrine famous for the thousands of Torrii (or gates) lining the pathway to Mount Inari, it is the most important shrine to Inari (The God of Rice) The torii gates along the mountain path are donated by companies or by private individuals and there details are inscribed on the back of the gates and can be bought with a donation between 400,000 and 1,000,000 yen. The full trail takes around 3 hours to walk and I spent almost that amount of time there, enjoying the beautiful views over Kyoto and the Torii.
