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

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!

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.

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).

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.

Walking

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.

Just too many people. We took the turn and went through "竹の下道" to the top of the Inari Mountain.

This is a pretty cool "off trail" trail. Its a little dirt trail breaks of the main one. It's a lot less crowded, with a really cool bamboo forest, and a hike through some houses and up the side of the mountain. which, the mountain had wild raspberries growing on it when I was there ( late may) I would do it again!

This is a great hike! You see both beautiful nature and architecture. There are a lot of stairs to climb but there's plenty to see without getting to the top for different fitness levels. There isn't any exceptional view from the top, so the enjoyment comes from the journey and the I did it! feels at the summit. You also get to enjoy the Shinto spiritual atmosphere and appreciate the culture and nature. It was quite busy the day I went, but it felt nice to share the feeling with so many people. It's well maintained and definitely not wilderness hiking. Definitely worth visiting :)

Definitely a hike. Hundreds of steps up and down around the mountain here surrounded by bright red torii or gates. It's a magical experience everyone should do in their lifetime. World class.

Great trail. I would recommend taking the trail that is not line with tori gates that starts from behind the shrine. At least for one way. It's much less crowded. I saw maybe about 7 people on that trail. Much more peaceful and line by bamboo forrest. There are also a bunch of smaller shrine along the way.

Extremely pretty, with a staggering number of gates to get lost in. It's easy to miss some offshoots with all the loops, so plan ahead if you're a completionist. As others have no doubt said, if you want to avoid crowds, get there early - 7:00 AM at the latest. And for God's sake, dodge the cherry blossom season!

Unfortunately, the app kept shut down on me while I was recording so I gave up recording. If you're in Kyoto, you don't want to miss this place! There are no fees to get in. Amazing place to be! You can get a good exercise by running up to the stairs. Recommend to go during the day since it gets really dark at night with even some lights. I completed the whole torii loops, truly amazing place to be! I will come back with my workout outfit next time, high heels took me little longer to finish it, although I got it done in about 2.5 hours by running up and down!

Such an awesome Hike. Like no other. 10,000 beautiful torii gates lead you to the top of Inari Mountain. Very nice gardens and a few decent views of the city.

Can be a crowded walk, although it thins out a little as you get higher up. You can step off the main trail at some points and walk outside the gates for a different perspective (and fewer people).

Absolutely beautiful, best to get an early start as it gets so humid but I would consider it a must do for anyone visiting Kyoto. Not particularly hard but because it’s so hot we definitely worked up a sweat.
