【About me】 I grew up in Fushimi region and live near Fushimi Inari Taisha. So I know on Fushimi inari shrine since I was a boy. Now Fushimi Inari shrine is one of the most popular places to visit, but there are too many people around and it is like an amusement park. I would like you to feel the nature and peace here as the locals used to do. I am a local who knows this mountain's courses very well and many beautiful hiking paths are hidden, they are not on the official map. If you like to know secret places where are not crowded in Kyoto, feel free to ask me. Welcome your questions about Japan as well. I also own my tour agency since 2011.

You will travel more than an hour from central Kyoto to those spots on this tour. It might sound a bit nuisance to move a lot but the further from the central city, the more spots left from 1,000 years ago. There are many anecdotes unique to Kyoto such as one about a woman who evacuated from Kyoto under war, a ceiling board with blood stain of samurai’s who have suicided during the war, and so on. What would you think of at those spots with many thoughts of predecessors? You can lose yourself in thought while watching the garden at a temple and have Japanese green tea. Don’t forget to book your tour to visit temples and shrines deep in the mountain!
