Dragons. Waterfalls. Political control. The Fushimi Inari Shrine is so more than its famous torii gates. Most people are satisfied by a scenic view of Kyoto and the forested trails through the mountain. We'll go through the main shrine, but we'll also go deeper. Much deeper. Visit tree gods and get your divination interpreted for you. Drink healing water from a hidden holy waterfall. Meet the locals who live on the mountain, and hike down a path off the beaten track. Even visit a peaceful Zen temple and learn how Shinto ideas have influenced the Zen garden. This is the smallest group hike (no more than 6 guests) at Fushimi Inari, so we can interact in an intimate setting. You will learn how politics changes the way people worship, how devotees struggle to strike a balance between ritual and spontaneity, and how Hinduism, Korean animism, and even the US military have shaped the Inari faith. You'll also learn about the shrine's connection to Pokémon and Studio Ghibli's films, and the roles that plants play in Japanese culture. Once you've been on this hike, you'll never see shrines and temples the same way again. You'll be primed to find hidden symbols, practices, and stories everywhere else in Japan. Come see what everyone else has been missing out on, and leave seeing Shintoism and Buddhism in a whole new light.

Mosquito repellent (for the summer months)
Lee, Gulay, Saliza
The 3 of us are Kyoto locals who want to help others see another side to our beloved city. You'll meet either Lee or Gulay on this hike. Lee is Singaporean. He worked across Asia making documentaries for Al Jazeera English, then moved to Japan 8 years ago to read political science at Waseda University. He has extensively interviewed devotees, shrine caretakers, and torii makers for their stories over the last 2 years. Lee is an avid cyclist, collects maps, and is addicted to tea. Gulay hails from Turkey. For 10 years she was one of the most popular guides at Istanbul's most important religious sites, but moved here 2 years ago. Well-versed in Islamic and Christian histories, she brings a unique comparative religious viewpoint to the hike. Gulay is also a proud mother of a beautiful baby boy and (an adopted) tubby tabby cat.

Her skal du være
After going through the main shrine to understand the contemporary practices at the shrine, we will be going onto forested trails to see what other tourists won't - hidden springs, sacred waterfalls, and old Buddhist statues that reflect the syncretic beliefs at Fushimi Inari. Don't miss out on a hike that will take you through the Buddhist & Shinto beliefs on Mount Inari and the unpaved, forested trails that only locals know about.

We like to allow you to relax on the quiet paths after the summit so this hike may end up to 30 minutes later than scheduled. The end time depends on the pace of the other guests on the hike. The hike ends at Tofukuji Station, served by both the JR and Keihan lines.
