It was raining when we went to Fushimi Inari-taisha, but I enjoyed my visit. It was a memorable walk up a mountain lined by toriis.
The toriis (the orange structures) are donated by Japanese businesses. The above photo shows the side of the walking path.
Here is the walking path. It looks a bit closed-up (even a little claustrophobic) in this photo, but there are gaps in between the toriis, as shown in the above photo.
The surrounding area is very green. We stopped often to enjoy the view.

Foxes are considered to be messengers.
I must admit that we didn’t do the entire circuit. We walked up and up for about 1 hour and then headed down.
The road leading to Fushimi Inari-taisha offers lots of interesting goodies and food.

It was a very nice place to visit. I enjoyed the walk even though it was raining almost the whole time.
