Fushimi Inari Taisha (2)

Last week I showed you the main area of Fushimi Inari Taisha (伏見稲荷大社). This shrine is most famous for it's 10,000 tori gates, presenting a truly unique beauty.
As you walk through the gates up the mountain you encounter many smaller shrines.
And the tori gates continue, an incredible number of them. Looking back you can see Japanese characters on them.
The whole area is stunningly beautiful.
This is one of the world's must-see sights.

Fushimi Inari Taisha (1)

Fushimi Inari Taisha (伏見稲荷大社) is one of the most famous sights in Kyoto, and indeed all of Japan.
It is the main shrine of the god Inari.
It is incredibly beautiful and no visit to Japan is complete without seeing it.
Next week I'll further explore this shrine, venturing beyond this gate to show you one of the world's most amazing sights.

Nijō Castle (2)

Here are more shots of the Nijō Castle (二条城 Nijō-jō) gardens, which include some pretty lakes.
Everything's kept up beautifully.
There's an impressive gate...
or two.
And what would a castle be without a moat?
This is definitely one of Kyoto's must-see sights.

Deer, Deer

I got my flu shot a couple of weeks ago. These little friendlies were sitting outside the doctor's office as I walked in, watching everybody come and go.
