Fushimi Inari Taisha....at night

Fushimi Inari Taisha at night
If you've been reading CandyflossOverkill over the last few months, you'll know that this is in fact the fourth time I've been to the famous Fushimi Inari Taisha shrine in Kyoto. It's an awesome place, and it's not somewhere you can miss out on a trip to Kyoto. If you wanna see what it looks like in the daytime, here's my post from the last time I went there). Anyway, as the title suggests, me and Lizzie went there in the evening, and it is so cool after dark! Usually in the daytime, it's rammed with people (I think it's the most popular tourist attraction with foreigners too) but at night it was really quiet. The lanterns were still glowing, and it was magical and spooky in equal measure. I'm not sure the photos can quite do justice to the atmosphere there, it was so intense. If you get the chance, definitely add going at night to your Kyoto to-do list!

If you have time, I definitely think it's worth visiting at night as well as in the day! It has a whole different atmosphere, and it's a really unique experience! I'd definitely recommend bringing a friend though, as it is a little creepy, and having a friend there makes it fun instead~ (Thanks Lizzie <3)
