Japan – Fushimi Inari-taisha

Holidays are defined as no-alarm-clock-days unless you have a million shrines to get to. Fushimi Inari was the only shrine that we woke early for (we are embarrassing 12pm risers) and you can see it was quite worth it. The gates line the path up to the mountain and back down. It’s almost the same view all the way, so if you are on a tight Kyoto shrine schedule like us it’s best to not make the commitment.IMG_0881IMG_0882IMG_0884IMG_0889IMG_0893IMG_0898IMG_0906IMG_0923IMG_0925IMG_0948IMG_0960IMG_0962IMG_0971IMG_0973IMG_1024IMG_1013IMG_1034IMG_1010IMG_1022IMG_0992IMG_0976IMG_0977IMG_0996IMG_0980

Tip 7: General etiquette in Japan is that you don’t eat or drink while walking. You will therefore notice that there are no rubbish bins on the street. (If you are in a dire and desperate situation there are recycling bins next to vending machines.)

        Did you guys find Japan expensive by the way? Currently torn between travelling to Taiwan (cheaper?) or Japan!

      • We thought Japan wasn’t too expensive (it’s hard to beat Auckland’s sky high prices) but in comparison Taiwan is incredibly cheap.
