VIDEO| Exploring Japan: Visiting famous shrine in Kyoto

Stripes Japan

Easily one of the most recognizable and most popular of Japan’s shrines, Fushimi Inari sits at the foot of the 764-foot-high Inariyama Mountain. After I worshipped in front of the beautiful main shrine, my family and I walked through more than 1,000 bright torii gates towards Inariyama summit. Although we gave up midway, if you have time, hike to the top of mountain for stunning views of the city from high above.
