Photos inside the Fushimi Inari Shrine
We arrived at Fushimi Inari around 1pm-ish in the afternoon and wow, let me tell you, there were A LOT of people. You’ll see in my photos below! Trying to get a photo with the torii gates was basically impossible. Hahaha!
People everywhere! That’s why most people choose to go early in the mornings to avoid the crowds.
Food at Fushimi Inari
After doing so much walking, we got hungry! Glad that there were A LOT of food stalls nearby. It you’re walking out of the shrine it is to the right of the exit. Take a look at some of the food they were selling in my photos below:
- Petra, One of the Seven Wonders of the World
- Mount Nebo
- The Baptismal Site of Jesus Christ
