Kyoto day 2 - part III
Our last temple-stop was Fushimi Inari where foxes guard the temple and you can climb small mountain walk through the beautiful orange arches all the way.
We didn't really know if Elinor would be up for walking the whole way to the top, but she was such a champ and took the challenge even though the weather was hot and it was late in the day. It was a really good experience - also because walking to the top had the upside that there were fewer and fewer tourist the higher you got. Escaping the masses in Kyoto does seem to be quite a feat.
The pay off at the top of Inariyama was a beautiful view of Kyoto and then enjoying the easy trip down the mountain.
