Great shots here! I’m already a fan of your photography!
Thanks Jesslee. It’s a great place to take pictures, and I was lucky enough to be there just as the priests were knocking off for the day and heading back down the hill.
Lee those pictures are something else, very very nice!

Oh, yes. It’s a wonderful place to go in Kyoto. Been there three times already. Best to get there by JR train as opposed to the Minami #5 bus from Kyoto Station, as that bus line is relatively infrequent.
Yeah, that’s the mistake we made!
wow..looks sublime..i wonder if this is the place they filmed the beginning of ‘memoirs of a geisha’ when the young sayuri runs thru a place like this??
Yes, they did film part of Memoirs… here. http://traveljapanblog.com/wordpress/tag/fushimi-inari/
Wonderful photos indeed! I hope to see the place for real.
