Fushimi Inari

 i suppose my second Tokyo update is a bit late, but it will arrive sooner or later.

Fushimi Inari-taisha is a magical place. It is also the main shrine of mount Inari. But the mountain is full of other shrines, houses, and wonderful things.  It considered to be one of Kyotos, and Japan, main attractions. In addition, it is 100% FREE of charges (for the downer, i received a lot of bug bites on my left leg).

so i’m not sure why i didn’t visit sooner.

i took the train to Demachiyanagi station, from there i was about to take the Keihan line to the “Fushimi Inari station”. Cannot get any simpler than this to get to a place.
However, i made a mistake and jumped into the express train, which skipped over 8 stops just like that and brought me to a far away side of town. i grabbed a hold of myself, no crying, and quickly jumped back into a Local train, which didn’t skip anything.!  Local trains make me happy.

nice weather

loads of Kitsune (foxes) 

at times, anime characters might jump at you from surprising junctions

i love how the ‘please don’t touch’ is only in english

the illustrious tunnels are indeed marvelously long. about two hours hike inside. 

i cut my way out at some spots for a change of atmosphere

chilling at the graveyard

hello, anyone home? 
nobody was there, but the fan was working quite loudly

at some point i drifted off track and went on taking photos of private houses 
look at this beautiful thing, right out of a fairy tail 

mysterious display

street corners like this one are of my favorite things about Japan.

bought this charming green guy, and a cube of 10% alcohol.  i’m pleased.
