  • Beautiful trail. Very popular with foreign tourists and locals alike. They ought to introducd an entry fee for tourists to reduce congestion
  • Nice little sub-shrine in the Fushimi Inari Taisha complex. However, the “Google Maps” way of getting there is a bit off, and for those who do not know how to read kanji may not be able to find it the “google maps” way. Essentially follow the maps way to the “destination” there will be a large Torī gate on the right, keep moving straight about 30m on the right a house has the map of the area and the real way to get to Araki Jinja from the area, rather that backtracking to Fushimi Inari and going up the mountain. Go 15m beyond the map, you’ll come to a “trail” follow that up and through the bamboo forest and you’ll pop out right at Araki.
