December 30th. Last day of this short trip to the south of Japan. For the 3rd time I`m going around Kyoto city accompanied with my family and new friends. One of the most interesting place in this old japanese city is the Fushimi Inari temple

[Fushimi Inari Taisha (伏見稲荷大社) is the head shrine of Inari, located in Fushimi-ku, KyotoJapan. The shrine sits at the base of a mountain also named Inari which is 233 metres above sea level, and includes trails up the mountain to many smaller shrines.

Since early Japan Inari was seen as the patron of business, and merchants and manufacturers have traditionally worshipped Inari. Each of the torii at Fushimi Inari Taisha is donated by a Japanese business. First and foremost, though, Inari is the god of rice. (source wikipedia)]

This shrine is something really special and really long. In 2 hours you can reach the top of the shrine. Because we started the in the afternoon to move to the top, I had to use ISO 1000 and above to take these photos

Enjoy the red tori shrine and Stay Click!
