  • Fantastic walk up to the top of the mountain. Don't be put off by the tonnes of people at the start of the gates as it's starts to thin out the higher you go. Also don't be put off by all the stairs.....  more »
  • Yes it is not an easy stroll, but a very rewarding walk up the mountain, a charming day out and great views across the city...  more »

  • I highly encourage everyone to walk to the top of the mountain through the bamboo grove instead of the main path to avoid the crowds and enjoy a quite and peaceful walk. Best time to visit the shrines is early in the morning; otherwise, it gets too busy.
  • Is totally worth to go all the way up!!! But more for the trip than for the last shrine. It was raining on the day I went so I can’t say anything about the view at the top. Just enjoy the walk and all the “floors”. Good cardio :)
