Visiting Fushimi Inari, hike on Mt. Inari and also visitting Sanjusangendo temple to see a thousand of golden Buddha statues
Just tourists walking in crowds and trying to get instagrammable photos in the arch of orange gates. May not have chance to know what's hidden behind the gates, even just call it "orange gates". We provide an experience in Fushimi Inari which takes you to the main path filled with the famous vermilion torii gates then goes off paved paths, onto ancient trails, into hidden bamboo groves and Buddhist waterfalls. You will learn Japanese native religion. After a little hike we get on a train and visit the most impressive Buddhist temple on my listing called Sanjusangendo temple which has the 750 year-old history. You will see one thousand one golden Buddha statues and learn Japanese Buddhism, how it works.
