“Highlight of my trip”
The Fushimi Inari Shrine is located only a few stops away from the city Kyoto itself. What was so special about this shrine were the many tori gates that lead you up the mountain. I visited the place in the middle of the summer with temperatures rising to 40 degrees celsius. It was very hot and humid, and the many stairs were not difficult to climb but overall it took me about 2 hours to go up and down again. I do not recommend this for kids if you want to go all the way up and down again. Nevertheless, there were some small shops that sold cold beverages and snack on the way. My favorite part where the little wooden fox prayer blocks where you can write your wish on, so cute!
