BUMBLING TOURIST

Day Trip to Fushimi Inari Shrine from Osaka

Here is a video we made in Fushimi Inari

We took the train from Osaka to Kyoto central station (see the post before if you want that information). We then took the Nara Line from Kyoto station and got off at Inari Station. Inari was intense. There were so many tourists, and it was raining now, so the crowds walking with their umbrellas was a lot to handle.

We first walked down the street and found some street vendors selling delicious foods. I got a delicious fried tofu with soy sauce, seaweed and mayo. The nice man at the booth let me eat under the cover of his stall (as it was raining really hard).

We then tried a different taiyaki (fished shaped waffle like desert) I had the matcha flavour.

We then walked back to Fushimi Inari to begin the climb to the top!

The first fifteen minutes of the climb were hell. There were hundreds of people with umbrellas, trying to climb through the tiny tori gates, all whilst stopping to take lots and lots of selfies.

As we climbed higher the crowds began to subside. Eventually we were by ourselves, and Fushimi Inari was great!

The rain coming down created a gorgeous mist and also made the green moss on the trees and shrines so much more vivid!

We wandered around until after sunset, and made it to the summit.

The lanterns in the shrine turned on as we made our descent .

We then took the Nara line back to Kyoto, then took the Kyoto line back to Osaka Station.

We then took the Osaka loop line back to our airbnb (but we took it in the wrong direction). Eventually we got back to our stop, Taisho . We dried off, and then headed back out to a little Izakaya under the train tracks by our airbnb. We had Okinomyaki (our favourite) and beer!!!
