To get to Kyoto from Shinsaibashi, Osaka I took the Midosuji Line to Yodoyobashi and then transferred to Keihan Line and went down on my first stop which was the Fushimi Inari Shrine.
From the Fushimi Inari train station, it was a 10 minute walk to the entrance. The station is an open station with no building and you have to cross the train track on the way to Fushimi. I was there at 7:30am and the scarcity of people made the place heavenly.
Walking through the countless torii gates that line the 2 hour hiking trail was a dreamlike experience. The wooden orange gates are perfectly lined and have Japanese writings on them. This is one of my top 3 temples.
