Kyoto: Day 3

I took the train to Fushimi Inari-Taisha, where the famous red gates are located. I also finally tried takoyaki, or octopus balls. They were just OK.

The first gate of Fushimi Inari-Taisha. I think.

Arriving at the temples

Water station to wash your sweat

Some big columns

The back of the gates have kanji on them

Small walkway with shrines

Small gates

A nice pond

Don't forget to look back

Some steep steps

It was a hot day and water stations are greatly appreciated.

This is the top. No great views, just another shrine.

On the way down

Stone gates

Yet another shrine

Fewer people on the way down

One of many shops and rest areas along the way

Treated myself to soba noodles once I exited Fushimi Inari-Taisha
