“Fushimi Inari Taisha”, a way to take divine pictures at Senbon Torii without tourists.

Fushimi-Inari Taisha. A shrine that represents Kyoto, the number one tourist destination that foreigners want to visit.

Most of the tourist destinations that TripAdvisor chooses to go to,

The cover of overseas Japanese guidebooks is usually the "Senbon Torii" of Fushimi Inari Taisha Shrine.

For some reason, it is a building that truly represents the mysteries of the Orient, and there is nothing similar in the world.

Surprisingly for Japanese people, "I often see the pictures of that torii gate, but where is it?"

It's about the same, but actually foreigners are better

It may be something like "Oh! FUSHIMIINARI !! I'd like to go !!".


And this vermilion torii is a vivid thousand torii.

Would you like to take a nice photo without putting people like tourists in the frame?

Tourists who visit the Senbon Torii are desperate to capture the divine sight of the torii gates.

That said, it's a world-class spot, and so many tourists are uninterrupted.

Foreign tourists accidentally get into someone else's camera frame, "Oh, Sorry!",

Japanese tourists are also trying to take pictures, "Oh, I'm sorry."

With that said, I bowed my head lightly and quickly escaped from the frame.

This kind of spectacle continues all the time while I'm in the Senbon Torii. ..



There is! There is a way to take pictures without other tourists! !!

This method is reasonably effective even during the tourist season, so be sure to remember it before you go.

And before that, a little tourist information about Fushimi Inari Taisha Shrine.


Fushimi Inari Taisha is the main shrine of "Inari-san", which is said to have 30,000 companies nationwide.

Access is 5 minutes from Kyoto Station on the JR Nara Line and immediately after getting off at "Inari Station".

It's very close.


The vermilion color of the main shrine is beautiful, and the mysterious splendor of the Orient has already come out without regret.


The votive tablet is also a fox here. It's fun to draw a face.


This is "Omokaru Stone".

When you hold a stone while making a wish, if you think that it is "lighter than you think", it will be fulfilled.

However, I feel that it is usually heavy. ..


This is a mini torii. Anyway, there are torii gates here and there.


"Omikuji" is a must-do for Fushimi Inari.

Nothing like normal Daikichi or Nakayoshi is written!

By the way, at this time,

"Good luck, undivided, Daikichi Sue".

I still don't know if it's good or bad. The last is Daikichi!

Hmmm hard to understand lol.

But well, it's Daikichi at the end, so it's probably Daikichi.


Unexpectedly, a new altar? There is also. There is something like a pocopoco Kamidana all over the mountain.


What is this animal? Is it okay with a fox? If anything, it looks like a weasel. ..


There are various sizes of torii gates.

The whole mountain is Fushimi Inari Shrine. It takes about an hour to reach the summit.

I want to climb up to the top of the mountain someday.


Well, I'm finally here, Senbon Torii.

Yes, there are a lot of tourists like this.

But don't give up!

With this method, you can take one that will last a lifetime, one that will surely look good on Instagram, and one that you will want to show off to others.

First of all, there are two ways to climb the Senbon Torii from the bottom.

It is correct to climb from the right side, so everyone goes through the torii gate on the right side.

Of course, tourists take pictures here and there.

Many people wait patiently until the previous person finishes shooting.


However, please go through this one quickly.

Then, enter another thousand torii gates that you didn't enter earlier!

Yes, everyone just climbs. Because the mountains are still on the way.

It's a little crazy to go back again.

By doing this one step, you can get the best one! !!


You did it, did not you?

Of course, the number of tourists is not zero, but less than half of the number of people who have climbed through.

If you wait for a chance, you can take a picture of "Senbon Torii" which is relatively easy for tourists to enter.

Also, another recommended technique.

If you go with two or more people, have them take a picture of you and the Senbon Torii.

Hiding behind my subject, I can't see other tourists lol.

This is surprisingly good.

Especially, if you take a picture of a person who came to Kyoto for sightseeing with this method, you will be a little impressed! !!

Please take a photo of your precious sightseeing in Kyoto and a memory of your life.
