From Fushimi Inari to Sanjusangen-do in Eastern mountains Area
Fushimi Inari Shrine, famous for many torii gates like an orange tunnel. But most tourists just visit only the entrance. I would like to show you the deep inside of Fushimi Inari Shrine through tunnel and take you to the top of mountain. From Inari mountain, we will walk a part of "Higashiyama trail" hiking course, then we will visit the family temple of imperial house and Sanjusangen-do temple.
In case of a heavy rain or bad weather, I would like to take you to Fushimi Inari shrine (the main hall and a part of orange tunnel ), Tofukuji big Zen temple, Sennyuji, and Sanjusangen-do or other places by my car.
