Conquering Fushimi Inari-tails: A Kyoto Adventure Unraveled!

Day 3 in Kyoto marked a milestone moment for us as we embarked on a journey to conquer one of Japan’s most iconic landmarks – Fushimi Inari-taisha! This place had been on our Japan bucket list for ages, and let me tell you, it did not disappoint. From the moment we set foot on its hallowed grounds, we knew we were in for an unforgettable adventure.

Mission: Climbing to the Highest Point

Our mission was clear: to climb to the highest point of Fushimi Inari-taisha and soak in the awe-inspiring views of Kyoto from above. As we began our ascent, we quickly realized that this was no easy feat. The higher we climbed, the sweatier we got, and the realization dawned on us – hydration was key! Note to self: bring plenty of water and a towel to mop up the sweat along the way.

Pro Tip: Views Are Worth It

Despite the physical exertion, we pressed on, fueled by the promise of breathtaking views awaiting us at the summit. And let me tell you, the views did not disappoint. As we reached the highest point, we were greeted by panoramic vistas of Kyoto stretching out before us, a sight that took our breath away and made every step of the climb worth it. Pro tip: while the climb may be challenging, the views are more than worth it, so don’t forget to pack your water bottle and a towel!

Mission Accomplished: Totoro Sightings

But our adventure didn’t end there. As we descended from Fushimi Inari-taisha, we stumbled upon an unexpected surprise – Totoro! Yes, you heard that right. The lovable forest spirit from Studio Ghibli’s iconic film was spotted in several shops around Kyoto, much to the delight of our kids – and us, let’s be honest. With happy kids and even happier parents, our day was made complete by these chance encounters with everyone’s favorite furry friend.

In conclusion, our day at Fushimi Inari-taisha was a journey filled with challenges, triumphs, and unexpected surprises. From the exhilarating climb to the summit to the joy of spotting Totoro in Kyoto’s bustling streets, it was a day we’ll cherish forever as a family. And with our mission accomplished and our hearts full, we left Fushimi Inari-taisha with memories that will last a lifetime.
