This place is absolutely A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!

From Kyoto, you want to jump on the JR train line towards the ancient capital of Japan, Nara. You will only ride the train for about 10 - 15 minutes before you get off at the Fushimiinari stop. From the train station, you will walk directly across the street towards one of the large orange toriis. From this point, follow the path as it leads you back into the forest and into the 4km looped trail lined with the bright orange toriis.

There are over 32,000 toriis throughout the length of the mesmerizing shinto shrine, a shrine that represents the Japanese' ode to rice.

Always practice Leave No Trace ethics on your adventures and follow local regulations.
