Fushimi Inari: the climb

Red gates are the staple of the Fushimi Inari Shrine. Thousands of them are lined on the path to Inariyama, the mountain hosting the upper Shrine of Fushimi Inari. The walk back and forth from the Shrine to the summit takes about 2 to 3 hours. On top, hundreds of small torii gates are piled in different sections of the Shrine as offerings to the god Inari.

Since my better half is Japanese I often have the chance to travel to Japan. I grew fond over time of this magnificent country. I thought of sharing with you some places worth visiting in this little but growing travel guide to Japan. I try to show with images what I can't express with words. I hope you may find here some inspiration! For those who wonder, I chose the moniker Gaijin-San after being called like this by a waitress at a grilled eel restaurant. "Gaijin" means foreigner and "San" is a honorific suffix in Japanese.
