“This is what you came to Kyoto to see”
Trust me, you came to Japan, and more importantly to Kyoto, to see sights like this.
10,000 Torii gates lined up, one after another is quite a sight. Even more so when you walk through them.
The mountain itself is quite steep and has multiple paths you can take to the top. The top is not thaaaaat impressive itself, but its a beautiful trek up a beautiful mountain. The forest all around the area is absolutely gorgeous. Summer brings out shades of green you may never have seen.
Though beware. In summer, the trek will make you sweat. Wear shorts. Or anything but jeans.
