Hiking Mt. Inari

Located in Fushimi Ward, Kyoto City in Kyoto Prefecture, Mt. Inari is one of the most scenic pilgrimage mountains of the Kansai Region of Japan. Mt. Inari Details:Mt. Inarior simplyInariyama, stands 233 meters tall and is a perfect day hike for those living in the city. Since the mountain is a pilgrimage mountain, there are several trails one can use to reach its peak. Some of these trails are made easier by the manmade steps which probably caters to the older pilgrims. These trails pass through several shrines and sub-shrines and not to mention the arcades of vermillion torii gates. 

For those who want a bit of challenge and of course lesser crowds, they can follow the Eastern Trail also known as the Bamboo Grove Course. From Fushimi Inari Shrine, follow the eastward trail to Okusha Hohaisho Shrine which is just several meters away from them famed Senbon Torii. 

Japan Diaries 3: Day 5

Day 5 (December 23, 2019) Good morning from Kyoto City, Japan!
For today's adventure, we are going to shift gears from "Family Mode" to a "Tri-group Mode".
The first group consists of my parents and my sister Aya. They plan to have a walking tour around Kyoto Station and also go shopping for souvenirs and Christmas gifts for our relatives in the Philippines. 
The second group consists of my wife and daughter. They will be heading to our godfather's house in Kumatori, Osaka where they'd spend a few days. My wife plans to cook some dishes and desserts for our upcoming Christmas Eve dinner with them. 

The third group consists of me and my brother Patrick. We plan to visit Fushimi Inari Shrine and hike Mt. Inari. Afterward, we'll try to visit as many shrines and temples that we could for the day. 

For this article, I'll focus mostly on my adventures with my brother. Speaking of our adventure, it began early in the morning right after our hearty breakfast.…
