Fushimi Inari Hike And Sake Tasting
- 1:00pm ~ 7:00pm (approx.)
- Full Day Tour
I pick you up at your Hotel at noon and we head for a day of hiking and exploring. We will first head to some beautiful Japanese Torii gates that make up a temple at the base of Mount Inari, that walk will take the better part of two hours. Dust off your hiking shoes because we will climb the 230-meter Mount Inari under the red Torii gates after we explore the Temple grounds and make an offering. Once we arrive, you will write your desire on a plank of wood which will then be offered to the shrine for the next mornings’ fire ceremony.
We will then greet the enormous horse of the gods and make our way through some 10,000 Torii gates. Your guide will explain the history of the area as you walk up Mount Inari and explore the beautiful forest along the way. I am sure after you are done, you will be ready for some Japanese sake at the end of the hike. We will hit another Shrine along the way and then from there we head over to a Japanese Brewery where your guide will explain the sake process and how to choose a sake when you are ordering around town. Japanese temples accept sake as a gift and even on any day, especially New Years Day it is common to go to the shrines and have some long buckwheat noodles and some sake during the new year. This hike and sake tour will leave you impressed with beautiful Kyoto.
