Featuring Arashiyama & Fushimi Inari Taisha in Kyoto after the virus outbreak.
A short cinematic travel vlog in Kyoto. While I don’t want to encourage people from other prefectures, especially living in Tokyo with rising numbers of infected people, it is very rare to see tourist spots in Kyoto with almost empty street. As of now, there are still travel ban for inbound for 100+ countries. The last time I saw this by not waking up very early was in 2014.
Anyway, Arashiyama is a tourist district in the western outskirts of Kyoto, which is famous for its famed Arashiyama Bamboo Forest, World Heritage Tenryu-ji Temple (ranked as one of the five great Zen temples in the city, sorry not in the video 🙁 next time), a small Monkey Park, a 20 mins hike in the mountains and Togetsukyo bridge, also known as Sagano.
Fushimi Inari Shrine is one of the most important Shinto shrines in Kyoto, dedicated to Inari, the Shinto god of rice. Foxes are thought to be Inari’s messengers, resulting in many fox statues across the shrine grounds. Fushimi Inari Shrine has ancient origins, predating the capital’s move to Kyoto in 794.
