The Fox Shrine

It's actually called Fushimi Inari Taisha but it has foxes everywhere so I guess the name stuck. I'm not sure you can tell from the photos but nearly every shrine we went to involved climbing a lot of stairs. I mean. a. lot. We started our 2.5 mile trek at the base of mountain Inari and kept going up and up for 2 hours or so. On the way down a couple people from our group got lost and wondered down itty bitty side trails on a spirit quest until they made it back home.

When stuff goes wrong on vacation I yell "It's an ADVENTURE!" at Rob.
