Fushimi-inari taisha is truly is a great place to visit. I am sure anyone who goes to Kyoto in Japan has been here or read that it was in the top 3 places to visit for a tourist. Tourist groups go here with guides. the best time to go is as early as you can go. It is a shrine and their for is open all the time, you can go in the middle of the night if you want, also it is free. You can spend an entire morning hiking all the way to the top to see the entire shrine. The tori gates make a different atmosphere. It feels like it is providing me a tunnel the travel through these woods up the mountain. I have taken photographs here early in the morning with no one around and have gotten great colors. this time I was shooting with some black and white film and still enjoyed getting these results.
