Things To See, Do Near Fushimi Inari Taisha

There’s more to the area than the renowned temple. Being a convenient Kintetsu or Keihan train ride from Osaka, and south of Kyoto city itself, it’s well worth the trip to Fushimi. The first thing you’ll notice when you arrive is that it’s a quaint, picturesque and peaceful place, compared to the hustle and bustle of Kyoto city, or even Fushimi Inari—at least it was when I visited.

A Trip to Minoh Falls

Located just north of Osaka city is picturesque Minoh. It is a beautiful little area with friendly people, the famous Minoh Monkeys, and Momiji—which is deep fried dried Japanese maple leaves. That is not all that this little piece of paradise has to offer however, for nestled within the foliage-filled hills that skirt the town you will find Minoh Falls.

Hanami at the Castle

Spring is in the air and it’s a wonderful time to be in Japan. Although the winter had been very mild and timid, it’s still enjoyable to welcome the warmer weather. This season however does not only herald a rise in the temperature, it also announces the arrival of new blooms, this one in particular is the plum blossom.
