Bamboo forest at Fushimi Inari-Taisha, Kyoto, Japan

Only a short ride from the city centre of Kyoto, you will find the Fushimi Inari Taisha. The shrine sits at the base of a mountain also named Inari which is 233 metres above sea level. It includes trails up the mountain to many smaller shrines which span four kilometers and takes approximately two hours to walk up. On your way you pass hundreds of fox red toris, which are donated by Japanese businesses. If you leave the path, you will find yourself in the middle of this super green bamboo forest.
