Big BIG tip for the ones who are visiting Fushimi Inari! Do not stick with the crowds at the beginning! Is always full of people and you cannot enjoy or take pictures decently! If you carry on, there is a huge bamboo forest, some beautiful graveyards and you climb all the way up and get an astonishing view of Kyoto. Then you have thousands of Shrines with no people there! Is worth it, a 1.5 hour hiking through the mountains! I loved it

The golden gates in Kyoto is a must see for anyone travelling to Japan. There are thousands of them and you can walk for hours. I recommend arriving early before the crowds.
