Fushimi-Inari Shrine

We headed to Kyoto last week on a beautiful sunny day to hike and check out Fushimi-Inari Shrine. We went with friends Ben and Leila and had a great time wandering up the hill and back down... here's a map of the hike- which is mostly through orange Tori gates and on nice paths with stairs...

an illusion... or twin gates?

The kanji on each gate is a bussiness' name. They are donated by the business' as Inari is the God of bussiness and is worshiped for wealth.

ancient moss :)

Faries could have lived here... but all we saw where frogs and quail...
