Don’t get caught standing in a crowd of tourists trying to get a good photo. We provide a personal hiking experience. This is the ONLY tour at Fushimi Inari which goes off paved paths, onto actual forest trails. We know of hidden bamboo groves and beautiful evergreens around Fushimi Inari Shrine. Local trails lead us to the main shrine with thousands of red torii gates, and we know of secluded trails that lead to old and hidden alters. We will begin at Tofukuji Station and wander into a quiet neighborhood, visiting small shrines on the way to the mountain. Then take a trail to see a wonderful bamboo grove, and connect to the main path filled with the famous vermilion torii gates. We will reach the summit of the mountain, which is covered in the shrine alters and then venture back down the mountain on a forested trail, visiting smaller shrines on the way to another bamboo grove. This will lead us to the most famous area of Fushimi Inari, perfect for a memorable photo. We will finish at the main shrine at the base of the mountain, where you can enjoy some local street food before you continue your adventure in the wonderful city of Kyoto. Please understand that this is a hike, not a normal walk, so it will require some effort. We will not recommend joining if you have trouble walking or not in a good condition.

We moved to Kyoto from America, and are both huge history buffs. I studied ancient cultures and religions while attending university, so being able to live at the base of such a sacred mountain means the world to me! We want to be able to show our guests the most incredible bamboo groves and shrines in Kyoto. Let us take you on an adventure and give you some insight into shintoism, and the importance of this wonderful mountain! We now have co-hosts to manage and offer this tour more often for travelers to enjoy! We, or one of them will be your guide! ■ I also offer the Kyoto's local food tasting experience at night. We will take you to 3 of our favorite restaurants in Kyoto. Kyoto Night Foodie Tour https://www.airbnb.com/experiences/1327107
Fushimi Inari Shrine (from hidden trails). This is Japan’s most famous shrine, known for the tens of thousands of red torii gates. We live at the base of the mountain and know all the hidden trails to avoid crowds as much as possible. We will also see beautiful bamboo groves where few people venture. At the end of the hike we will venture into the main entrance of the mountain and enjoy incredible street food.
