I have always wanted to go to the Fushimi Inari Taisha Shrine, but when we and my boyfriend went to Osaka two years ago, we were not able to go to Kyoto. This time though I planned our stay in Osaka to be about four days so that we would have the opportunity to go to Kyoto as well. I really wanted my sister to experience a lot while in Japan.
We went to Fushimi Inari shrine during our third day in Osaka. The travel was fairly easy and it wasn’t that hard to find the place. The moment you get out of the station the place is there.
Before we went ahead and walked to the trails we actually went to the street where there were a lot of food vendors. There were so many good food, but we went for those with few lines. We went and got us Taiyaki with red beans and bacon. The taiyaki was delicous and was quite fresh. The bacon was very tasty as well.
After our stroll through the food vendors we went towards the shrine. There were a lot of people and you know how in pictures it’s usually red, it was actually more orange-like, but always appeared red-ish on our photos.
There were also guardian foxes near the entrance of the shrines.
Here are some various photos I took. Oh and there was a map at one point showing us the way to the mountain and to the exit, and we chose not to go to the mountain. I guess we were tired from all the walking.
