Very crowded but absolutely gorgeous. My advice is to get there extremely early if you want to just enjoy the stunning views of the Bamboo. Really easy walk.

Competed this trail a few times and never get bored .. Tori Gate Central .. walk through hundreds as you work your way up to the top of Mt Inari and back down .. there are many trails you can choose if you wish to extend it .. I actually did a 6km version and included the outskirts through the forest as well. Recommended

Nice trail leading up to a great view of Kyoto .. well laid out and if you want to enhance the experience come down the trail to Nanzenji .. recommended

Wonderful trail through the bamboo forest. There's a not so tiny private property including a tea house with delicious green tea. There's a small fee to enter but it's worth it in my opinion

It's a very nice walk (not a hike!) through some lovely scenery. Am sure in busy times it gets packed with tourists.

The monkey forest was close by corona, besides that the walk is really beautiful. If you are in Kyoto you should come since it’s vibe is very traditional and totally worth for a Sunday walk.

Such a cool place to visit!!! There’s a lot to see and it’s a lot more complex than it seems on social media. Take time to enjoy the shrines while visiting with locals (and the stray cats). Get there early enough if you want to go to the top because it gets dark!

Probably my favorite spot I visited in Japan! This whole area is beautiful, but this was out of this world! Worth getting up early for to beat the crowds. Recommend going to bamboo forest first, walk by the river next, grab a coffee by the water, and make your way to the monkey park!

Hiking

Places in Japan are otherworldly and this hike is no exception. Being able to walk through hundreds of years of history through this shrine is always a special experience. There's a sense of tranquility here the deeper you into the shrine through the hundreds of vermillion torii gates away from the touristed and more highly trafficked paths towards the beginning. There are restrooms along the hike, an abundance of shade, and some snack stops like tea houses and ice creams along the way. That being said be prepared to spend a substantial amount of time here (close to a half day) if you want to complete the full circuit depending on how crowded it has the potential to be and having time to take in different viewpoint sites. And be prepared for your legs to burn as it is mostly paved steps both uphill and downhill. Note you can start the hike before the shrine officially opens to the public as the grounds are open 24/7. You just won't have access to public services.

One of the highlights of Kyoto. This is actually quite the workout! The route is covered with a 1,000 bright red/orange painted gates (torii). The experience is quite surreal and unforgettable. Several parts of the trail were practically empty, since most tourists do not do the back loop found on this route. It's much more peaceful.

Beautiful hike! As some others have stated, I’d recommend starting at Kurama instead. If you get off at Kibuneguchi station and follow the trail as suggested the first ~2 miles are uphill on a road with no sidewalk and not a whole lot to see- it was much better taking this downhill at the end. Other than that this whole area is beautiful and completely worth the short trek from Kyoto.

The bamboo forest is unbelievable. I would fully recommend getting there as early as possible as it is a tourist trap, gets super busy.

We hiked from Kurama to Kifune and loved it! It's probably one of the best I've experienced in Japan. If you can deal with inclines, it's easy. We had a 5/6 month pregnant lady in our group...the reactions from people passing us were awesome :d

Great trail! Waited by the temple at the start for 40 minutes until 830am when it opened only to realize the trail started the next street over and behind the temple. Still managed to beat the crowds! Went through the bamboo forest and then over and up to the monkey sanctuary. Easy hike without much of a climb

Hiking

Well marked - we walked from Kibune/kibuneguchi to Kurama and it was a good choice. The food options in karabe were not as numerous or varied as we had hoped/ thought there would be. We took the trolley down which was fine - straight down but not very scenic, it probably cuts 20min off the hike. It would be beautiful to do this as night with the trail lanterns to guide you.

HikingGreat!

Absolutely worth it to spend at least half the day here. There is so much to see along the way from a little lake to the many fox statues. I definitely recommend walking all the way to the top, the crowds thin out and you can enjoy the tori gates (and get your ig photos). It's not terribly difficult, but be ready for a bit of a workout. Start as early as you can to try and beat some of the crowds.

Moderately challenging (generates a sweat for the average person). Lots of shade from surrounding trees, pretty much all uphill hike and coming down. The higher up you go on the path the less tourists you see actually continue (the most crowded part is clearly the beginning section, after that it’s less congested).

Very easy trail, really not even that much of a trial, more of a touristy nature walk since it’s always crowded with tourists. Still, if you’re in Kyoto this is a MUST DO.

You can’t miss this walk when visiting Kyoto! Such a beautiful and well kept trail. Plenty of places to rest and grab a quick bite to eat/ drink on the way up. The trail starts busy but becomes quieter the further up the mountain you go. Don’t bother taking photos in the crowded areas down the bottom if you’re going to the top of the mountain. There are plenty of chances for photo opportunities as it gets quieter higher up. Make sure to wear comfortable walking shoes as the incline towards the top of the mountain becomes a bit steep.

A nice walk to the top with plenty of viewing points along the way. Went in the evening time to avoid the bulk of the crowds but it was still very busy (might be because it was Halloween). An easy walk but not very accessible due to the amount of steps, so some people may not be able to complete it.
