Another tick on Kyoto’s impressive list of things to see is Fushimi Inari, a shrine marking the first of a thousand Tori gates. They wind a vibrant red tunnel up a mountain path, climaxing in a spectacular summit view. It is a photography wonderland- with deep reds, unusual compositions and plenty of tourists to catch unawares. These are some of my favourites-

Thanks! It was one of those places where you can just run round with a camera and the shots are there

The hardest part for me, when I was there, was getting a shot without people in it! When I visited I stayed in a ryokan within walking distance, so I was able to visit both the shrine and Gion quite easily.
Gorgeous shots. 🙂

It it very hard to get a shot with out people. You can wait for ages think you are about to get it and then someone will turn up at the last moment to ruin it! 🙂
