Torii Gates of Fushimi Inari by distillme Torii Gates of Fushimi Inari by distillme
These are the famous Torii Gates of Fushimi Inari in Kyoto, Japan.

This was my absolute favorite place in Japan. It is the most peaceful place I have ever been to! :) Fushimi Inari is said to be protected by foxes, which is why there are fox spirit statues throughout the shrine.

I HIGHLY recommend visiting Fushimi Inari when you go to Japan. It is a wonderful day trip because the shrine encompasses an entire mountain! You hike up the mountain through the Torii Gates and at the top is a view of Kyoto. Then you get to hike down the whole other side of the mountain! There are lots of small shrines and shops to visit along the path as well.

I wish I could go back every time I see this picture that I took! :) <3

I am insanely jealous! I want to go to Japan so horrifyingly bad! UGH! ;__; All these pictures of Japan makes me want to go even more. I'd love to visit this shrine.
